Question about running two incremental backups in Symantec Backup Exec 2010
Posted on 2013-05-20
Using Symantec Backup Exec 2010 running two daily backups, "Backup A" is a daily incremental backup to a static USB hard drive which runs at 11pm weekday evenings. "Backup B" to a removable USB hard drive at 10am weekday mornings which is taken off site once offices close (serving as an off site backup). My question is this:
If Backup A runs on a Tuesday Night, completes successfully and resets the archive bit on all of the files it has backed up, then at 9am the next morning a user makes a change to a file which in turn will mark the file as "to be included in next incremental backup", then Backup B runs at 10am and includes the file that had changes made to it at 9am and proceeds to reset its archive bit, will Backup A no longer include the file which was changes at 9am (I need it to be included in both backups using incremental not differential)? or does each backup job/task in Backup Exec have its own unique archive bit?
Unable to find information on how archive bit is handled when two different incremental daily jobs are run and would much appreciate any information anyone can provide.
Thanks in Advance,
