I have a file server which i would like to backup properly after a very bad disaster which cost thousands to fix due to a backup / restore failure.
I have a 1.5TB Removeable Hard Drive. i would like to do 1 Full Backup per week to this & 4 Differential Backups. As i understand this i will have to load the full backup & each differential backup in the event of a failure.
How should my Media Set/ Overwrite/ Append periods be configured?
The problem i had before our disaster was that BE was showing that the Backups were 100% verified & successful but when Symantec Engineers were helping me out with the issue they said that part of the backup file had been overwritten & that Backup Exec could not make sense of the .BKF file that i had. Also a big issue was i backed up to one file rather than the 4GB recommended (defualt) file size.
We have also purchased the Exchange Agent but i have no idea how to set this up. I am not just relying on you guys to help me out i am also reading the 5 inch thick Backup Exec Manual too.
