Overwrite Protection for Media Sets
Currently within Backup Exec 2012 there are three Overwrite Protection levels:
However none of these selections will protect your media once its Overwrite Period expires! Once your Overwrite Period expires for your media, it becomes "Recyclable Media" and can be utilised for any backup operation, regardless if you allocate it to a specific Media Set. Yes, in a perfect world we should all be able to manage the Overwrite Period, but sometimes backup fail and things get out of sequence.
My request is for an additional Overwrite Protection selection be created that protects media allocated to a Media Set. This would then protect dedicated media tapes from being overwritten with incorrect data.
