Symantec Backup Exec 2012 - media rotation question
I recently purchased Symantec Backup Exec 2012 and would like to replicate our old NTbackup system (defined by our policies).
We currently have a media rotation system whereby we have 4 tapes that cycle through on a schedule:
Week 1 Sunday = Full 1
Week 1 Monday to Friday = Incremental 1
Week 2 Sunday = Full 2
Week 2 Monday to Friday = Incremental 2
Once they are full the tape is archived in a FIRESAFE and a new tape is created.
I am just wondering if someone can advise me on the best way to approach this media rotation, using USB HDDs. So far I have created a storage pool and assigned 4 different tasks to each of the USB HDDs. However, it doesn't seem obvious how I can specify the USB HDD to restore from in the event I need to restore back to an earlier date. Plus Symantec keeps complaining when the USB HDDs are disconnected (only 1 is connected at any given time and full USB HDDs will be archived in a FIRESAFE).
