My backups are running fine using CA Arcserve 12 but I always have to ready makeup jobs.What I mean is that I run full backups on Friday and Mon-Thu incremental backups appending to this device Schedule job always fails because I'm trying to add new sessions to the existing header which was obviously created last Friday.I can not create pool because I only use 1 internal HD.I thought dilemma is somewhere within global options but I believe  I tried all options.It has to be a way to run makeup jobs automatically...What has to be done...

Hi,

although you only have 1 internal HD for backup, you can create different FSDs in a single HD (ie. E:\FSD1 , E:\FSD2 , E:\FSD3 , and so on..). With this, you can still do your normal media pool to run backups.

I presumed you're using the Rotation Scheme scheduling to configure your backup job(s), there's an option "Enable GFS" and a little checkbox below which says "Append Media". By enabling both, even if only 1 FSD you should be able to keep on appending backup data onto the single HD.

Another method which I would use when backing up to a single HD / volume is to use Disk Staging. By enabling Staging, you can further enable "paused data migration" and under staging policy, enable "Do not copy Data" for Full / Incr / Diff backups so data will get retained on the HD. Then specify the retention period so once after data expires, it'll get purged from the HD automatically.

Hope this helps,

Setzer
