HDD full - Backups failing BE 2010 r3
Hi - I've been researching this problem a bit - and for all the solutions I've found - none of them seem to apply.
INFO: Server = Windows server 2008 r2 standard
Backup Exec 2010 r3 (upgraded last week from r2)
Backup drive size - 4.50 TB
- Free space as of 11/8/12 100 GB
ERROR - Backup to disk device is out of free space.
Needless to say - this causes other jobs to fail - as well as the duplicate to tape jobs.
Under Tools:Options: Media management - "Partial - protect only allocated media" and "Overwrite scratch media before overwriting recycleable media..." is selected.
If I am looking at the correct setting (tools: wizards:backup to disk wizard: EDIT properties of an exsiting backup to disk folder) - It shows overwrite of 5 days (basically the number of days of the tape rotation).
WHAT am I Missing??? We are getting to be non-functional as all of our B2D jobs are starting to fail.
How can I find out what can be deleted - and delete it??? the oldest files that I can find in the B2D-GRT folder are from 11/2/12 (6 days ago)
the oldest files i can find in the B2D-Data folder are ALSO from 11/2
so I am at a loss. We have added no additonal servers or really anything to be backed up - of any size that would matter - since I started in February. This has only started happening with the upgrade from r2 to r3 for BE2010.
Can anybody help???
