Which disk to bring back?
When you use tapes, you have a retention period that you can see when you look at offline media.
If you use the above procedure, how do you figure out which drive you need to bring back from offsite storage? I cant see any way to tell which drive you would use. We are using 5 drives for daily and then want to keep 5 weeks of weekly full backups and keep 12 months of monthly backups and then 6 years of yearly full backups. With that number of drives, I need to know which ones can be brought back online.
