We backup onto external hard drives.  I have setup the backups thru System Management.  How or is it possible to setup it up in such a way to append, and when the hard drive is full it start from the beginning writing over that hard drive again.

I would setup a full backup that overwrites every X days/weeks, depending on how much space you have... Then use append backups for all the days in between.

Hi there,

Where would i find the append/overwrite tab, bearing in mind that I used the SBS Backup Console under Server Management.
