Dedup backup job and unused appendable media
since some weeks i implemented a new backup job which save a SQL DB transaction log every 60 mins to a dedup folder.
It works right except for the media usage, it creates a new 50Gb media for every occurrance, using only 50-100Mb of it.
These media have a retention time of 24hrs and appendable time set as "infinite allow" so i was expecting that the job will use entire media capacity before create a new one.
Googling this issue i found some tips about WORM parameter but:
- inside job template properties this setting is blank ("Use write once, read many media" under "Device and media" section)
- inside single media properties is enabled ("WORM: yes" in General section)
So, i never activated it and i don't know why job works in this way but this behavior is wasting a lot of space of DD folder than i need to solve it..
Anyone else has got this issue?
any suggest will be appreciated, thanks
