Full and Differentials on different B2D devices
Hi All - We're currently running Backup Exec 2010. We do a full backup on Friday nights and differentials Monday through Thursday - all to the same B2D device (different B2D folders for each job on the EHD). I also have a separate full backup that runs on Saturday nights to a second EHD that I bring offsite. I have two issues currently. One is that the main backup drive is no longer big enough to hold both the full backup and all four differentials so I need to do something about that. The second issue is that I'd like to find a better solution for our offsite backup. I'd like to be able to rotate two drives for the offsite bacup so I always have one that's out of the office. Two questions:
1. Can I move the differentials to a different external hard drive while leaving the full backup on the existing drive? The over abundance of data is temporary so I only need this to work for a few weeks. Is it as simple as creating new B2D folders on the second EHD and pointing the differentials to it? Sorry for so simple a question but I don't normally deal with Backup Exec beyond checking the jobs and doing simple file restores.
2. Can anyone point me to a good article on rotating backup-to-disk devices for our offsite backup?
