Schedule format of drives to use with Windows Server 2008r2 Backup
Posted on 2011-09-20
I am trying to shcedule formating removable drives for backups using Windows Server 2008 R2 Backup. I have all the removable hard drives inventoried, but when the drive is replaced each week it just adds incrementals. Ulimately we are trying to do a full backup and then incrementals each week. From what I can see if a newly formatted (for back up) drive is put in the server then the backup will be a full backup, hence why I am thinking a format is needed. Is there an automated way to do this?
