So if I have 4 external drives, and each one gets installed on a Tuesday, how long do I set my OPP for?
That's a part that I'm not getting. I looked at your article - thanks! I'll do that setup this weekend, but I'm still not sure on the OPP setup. I'd like to set it at 21 days so that it's clear to be overwritten the next time it gets connected. You said that rotation doesn't matter for OPP (well, I'm paraphrasing I think) but it still has to be shorter than the rotation period.
Somewhere I read (or heard) that I should do a full, and then incremental on the same drive for that one week, and keep going like that. Drive 1, Tuesday - full, W-M - incremental. Change to Drive 2 on the next Tuesday and same routine.
I've never been a fan of incrementals but that does seem pretty good as the backups will be quicker.
