Hey Guys,

Currently, I have a dual driver Dell TL2000 LTO4 which basically does a full backup of our servers nightly. I take a each nights backup offsite with me and the Friday night's backup goes down to our offsite vault each Monday.

I have now been told to setup BackupExec to do nightly B2D, and I'm not 100% as to which way to go about it.
I have a storage server with about 7TB, which has the Backup Exec 2010R3 installed on it.

Now I need to backup roughly 4TB of data nightly, which will then be backed up to LTO4 tapes during the day, which I'll take offsite

I know this sounds extremely stupid and I totally agree. But for some god awful reason, this company will not allow me to differential backups during the week. Everything must be FULL BACKUP and this is what they want...

So now I'm trying to wrap my head around how all this is going to work through BE in regards to catalogs and restores.
Obviously, I'm going to have to basically setup a Media Set that has a 1day overwrite period and have the BFK files associated to this Media set.

My brain is hurting please help :(
