Best Backup Practices
Posted on 2004-03-21
I have 5 tapes that I use for my DLT160 Drive I only need 1 tape per day because I don't exceed the limit. I'm currently only backing up about 40 GB. I perform a Full backup every night using the native backup of Windows 2003 Server (ntbackup).
I'm confused on the "Backup Set" and "Media Label". Can someone please explaing to me what they are?
Does it even pertain to me since I'm performing a Full backup everynight?
Right now I have aach tape with a different "backup Set" and "Media Label"
Backup Set = Monday
Media Label = Monday
Backup Set = Tuesday
Media Label = Tuesday
Backup Set = Wednesday
Media Label = Wednesday
Is that correct? Do you have any recommendations?
