hi

i am currently setting up symantec 12 d for tape backups etc, and i am also using SQL agents to backup 3 databases.

the SQL agent works fine and is backing up to a backup to disk folder that i created, what i want is a full sql backup every night and then incremental backups during the day which is fine, but the backups continiously keep adding to the disk and never over write the old data!

is there a job i can setup that will delete files of a certain age etc?

Do the following if you want the files to be re-used every evening.
* In Tools/Options/Media Management, choose to "Overwrite recyclable media in the targeted media set, before overwriting scratch media".
* Make sure the Overwrite Protection on trhe Media Set you target in the B2D job is set correctly, so Backup Exec can re-use the bkf files when the data in them is no longer required.
