Backup-to-disk Folders Setup with BackupExec 11d
Posted on 2007-03-25
I just instaleld Backup Exec 11d, and I need some assistance with setting up backup-to-disk folders. We are backing up about 10 servers to a local RAID array (with plans to backup to tape in the works). I want to do weekly full backups and daily differentials. The full backups are spread out over the whole week because it takes too long to do them all in one night.
What is the best way to setup the backup-to-disk folders? Should I set up separate devices for each server (with full and differentials) or set up a folders by days of the week, overwriting the folders each week?
Basically, we started running out of space because the data from previous weeks was still being saved, and we just want the one week of backups for each server (and we backup of all the backup sets to tape after we get a tape library installed).
