IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Backup Exec 12.5 & 2010
Quantum Super LTO3
If you are running Backup Exec 2010 i recommend open the backup job --> View Selection Details --> and take a screen shot the list for a quick reference. If not the backup App should have something like this.

i don't know of a diagram that you can pull from this this but with this info you should be bale to draw something together really quickly.

Let us know if this doesn't work for you and we can try something else?

There wil not be any diagram available.We need to prepare our own in Visio or PPT.

Please try to prepare your diagram in the below mentioned format
