We use Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R2

I can see, that the folder Catalogs under Backup Exec is growing - it is now on 35Gb.

I know that it uses this catalog to keep track of backup sets.
But is the a way to shrink this catalog?
Where do I set up, how much or for how long to save in the catalog?

You can set the catalogs to be deleted after a certain time.

Tools - Options - Settings - Catalog - Truncate Catalog after

And then make sure you schedule database maintenance.

Tools - Options - Settings - Database Maintenance

You can re-create a catalog from a tape but it takes a long time, and usually when you want to recover somethign you are in a hurry.

You can also move yourcatalog to another place.
