Reclaiming Disk Space: There must be a better way...
Hello...I am using B.Exec 2012.
The problem is: I cannot easily see what data on a storage group is backed up to both Disk and Tape allowing me to then delete the backup set.
Presently I do the following: To determine what backup sets need to be sent to tape, I click on the Storage tab and then I double click the particular storage device (We'll call it drive S:). This shows me the backup sets for the storage device. I have 10+ Servers sending data to this storage device. So, in order for me to see what data is on both Disk and Tape for each server, I have to now click on the Backup and Storage tab, click on All Servers (or a Server Group I may have created), and then double click the Server #1. And on the left hand side of screen I choose 'Backup Sets' from the 6 choices. And this shows me the name of the backup sets and their corresponding dates they ran. If I see a particular backup set(s) that has both Disk and Tape stated as the storage location I then take a screeenshot so as to use momentarily. I then click on the Storage tab which shows me ALL the backup sets sent to that storage device. In this particular case I see over 200 backup sets. So, now I scroll to the backup set(s) that are the same as seen in the screenshot I just took. This screenshot ensures I delete the correct backup set as I compare the day and time of the backup set.
And I have to repeat this process for all of the Servers that send data to this storage group.
Is there an easier way?
