Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 - Changed B2D Retention Period

Created: 24 Sep 2012 | 2 comments


I am trying to determine if there is an easy way to change the retention periods on my full weekly backups. Currently it is set to 4 weeks i would like to change it to 6 weeks.

The backups are on B2D.. it doesnt look like there is any clear documentation on how to accomplish this.

1. Determine which media set is being used by the backup job in quesiton (check it by going to Job Properties - Device and Media)

2. Determine if any other jobs are using the same media set.

3. Go to Media tab - right click on the Media Set in question - go to Properties

4. Change the media set properties as desired and press ok.

Note: This change would affect all the jobs using this media set.

Also, note that when you can change the OPP/AP of a media set.  The changes take effect immediately.
