Upgrade from version 12 to 2012 was a huge mistake
Hello all, first let me just say that Backup Exec 2012 $%^&, the program is a ab*&tion!
Now that I have that out of the way here is my story.
1. I upgraded from BE version 12 to 12.5, THEN to 2012. The upgrade from 12 to 12.5 was a requirement.
2. When using version 12, I had a simple but effective backup routine. Monthly fulls of selected data, then different backup for the remaining days of the month.
3. BE 2012, chopped up all my backup jobs and now wants to run full back ups every other day or every other week or every third day. Not good.
4. I cannot restore ANY of my data.
So now I have a program that makes full backups frequently and has chewed up all the space on my VTL, with zero ability to restore any of my previous job data.
I need to go BACK to version 2010, since the 2010 version worked similar to version 12.0
I saved the entire BackExec from version 12 BEFORE I did the upgrade to version 12.5
My question is how can I get back to version 2010?
I have phoned BE tech support to resolve these issues, spent HOURS on the phone with them they are USELESS.
As a side note, anyone here research other solutions? I'd love to find a useable product.
