Physical compare verify
A few years ago, I asked a question about verify jobs in the Bacup forum
and got a real schooling about Verify jobs in Backup Exec.
I thought I'd introduce a feature idea based on the incorrect notion I had about Verify - that being a physical comparision between a source and a backup copy.
In a D2D2T or tape-to-tape copy, it might be worthwhile to go back and compare the actal data in the source with the data in the copy.
It's not a tenable concept for a live server (I suppose you could always compare a copy with the source snapshot used to create the copy) but if the source is known to be stable, and the need for absolute certainty exceeded the time penalty incurred (e.g. shipping a strategic product out to a customer), it might be worth having that possibility.
