Veritas Overwrite and appendable media?
Posted on 2010-09-23
Quick question that has been bothering me for a long time.
I have overwrite and appendable media options. I want to keep data for 3 days guaranteed so I put 3 days for the overwrite protection. Thats easy, however, for the appendable media, I want anything after three days to be overwritten so the storage doesn't fill up and crash.
Usually I use Infinite, allow append for the append period however, this seems to work but was a little backwards sounding. Am I doing this correctly?
Also, there is another setting on the job properties under "Device and Media" called "Append to media, overwrite if no appendable media is available"
This is all sort of a brain twister. If someone can clear this up that would be great.
Thanks again guys/girls.
