Old data to retrieve from a Deduplication Storage

Created: 29 Oct 2012 | 1 comment

What is the oldest backup job I can restore using a Deduplication Storage ?

It seems like I cannot get data older than a few months. I was looking at some backups back 5-6 months ago.

How can I retrieve that data? I know it is listed as succesful in the Job History ...

Hi,

Your media set that targets the dedu.pe folder has a retention policy assigned to it. You need to see what this retention time is. If the data has been expired from the dedupe folder, and unless you duplicated to tape or another disk storage location, then your data is gone!
It would very well be that your catalogs and job history are retaining that information for longer than you should be.

Thanks!
