Symantec Backup Exec 2010 Exceeding disk space
Posted on 2010-09-20
I've got a bit of a noob issue with Backup Exec which seems to be a recent one.
We have a file server which i'm backing up. The File Server is only 700GB + 320GB of HDD. The HDD's are not full and not all is being backed up (but most).
I have them backing up to a HDD with 1.7TB of HDD and it is running out of space. I've tried numerous settings and while incremental is preferable. If it can't work i'm happy to do a new backup each time.
The key settings I have are:
Backup Method = 'Full'. This seemed logical since I had the backup setting as incremental but not working.
When this job begins = 'Overwrite Media.
If i've got this wrong, let me know.
Ideally i'd like to have incremental but cap the amount of days or disk space that can be used.
Thanks in advanced
