Veritas Symantec Backup 12.5 RDX
Posted on 2009-12-16
Having used veritas backup for many years with tapes, I am about to use it with an HP RDX (HDD based) backup.
I am asking this question as a means of saving myself time by trying several options.
First off, what is the best way to setup the RDX device in backup exec. Start with Backup-to-disk wizard? Should I select removable?
I have used the limited windows sbs2008 backup and I love how I can select full backup, the software looks at the drive and only backs up changes that have been made to the existing files on the HDD. How can I do something simialer with rotating HDD in backup exec.
Just to clarify. The first time I run a backup it would take a while as the first HDD would be empty. The next time I use the same HDD in my rotation it would see that the data is already present and only backup the changed files.
My understanding from incremental etc is that I may end up with a full on one drive and the incrementals on another. I would like the backup exec software to look at the drive first, so it would be incremental to the loaded media only. Not overall.
Hope this makes sense.
