We recently bought Veritas Back-Up and I want to use it to do a full back up once a week, and then just back up the changes to the files everyday. Then every weeek I will change the tape.
That's two jobs:
*New tape goes in every Friday.
*First job = full back-up, overwriting anything that's there. This be on Saturday, when no-ones here.
*Second job, runs every day, Monday to Friday in evening, records changes. Do I use differential or incremental. What's the difference? Anyway, this job will always append.
Come Friday, tape is ejected. This should contain one full back up file and five changes back-up file.
Does this sound good?
