Did you know- In BE 2012 you can back up a server by using existing settings from another backup?
When you configure a backup, you can use all the default settings in the backup definition and get up and running quickly. However, some people spend a lot of time tweaking and refining the backup options to suit their particular needs. After your backup is set to your liking, you can save time with your other backups by using these settings again. When you reuse the backup settings, you can still edit the settings, such as when you want to select a different device, use a different schedule, etc. I’ll walk you through the steps on how to create a new backup by using the settings from an existing backup.
First, select a server that you want to back up. Then, click the Backup button. For the initial backup, select any of the backup strategies, such as backup to disk, tape, disk then tape, etc.
