Overwrite Protection Period and Append Period Times Advice
We're in a situation where I currently need the daily differential backup media used and the set wiped each day. We have one full backup a week on a Friday and differentialson other week days, and space is extremely limited.
On the daily differentials I've set the OPP to 12 hours and AP to 0 Hours, so that each media can be overwritten every day. I set the OPP to 12 hours so that the media can be free to be overwritten after that time - am i right in thinking this? And the AP is set to 0 so that it can be overwritten.
Fridays full backups have a different set so thats set to OPP 2 days (as these only run once a week) and AP to 0 hours. So after two days the whole set is ready to be overwritten without appending.
I'd be grateful if someone could confirm whether this is ok?
