Overwriting media in Win2000 backup
Posted on 2002-07-01
I have a Win2000 server that I use Win2000 Backup to schedule daily full backups to my internal 4mm DAT drive. I have the following batch file set to run each night using Task Scheduler:
ntbackup backup "@C:\Program Files\Windows NT\NTBackup\DailyBackups_20jun02.bks" /j "Daily Backups"/p "4mm DDS" /d "Data, System" /v:no /r:no /l:s /m normal /rs:no /hc:on /um
My problem is, unless the media is blank, I get an error in the log stating that there is "no unused media available". Is there an easy way to get this to overwrite whatever media is in the drive? I want to be able to use a two week supply of tapes and overwrite them on the third week. For example I have Monday1, Monday2... on week three I want to overwrite Monday1 with that day's backup.
