Hello,

I use BackupExec 2012 and a Autoloader with 8 Slots for our Backup.
I want to build a Media Set of 4 Tapes for the incremental Backup Monday to Thursday.
Is it possible to write the first backup on tape one of the set then protect it for 7 days so the next backup is stored to tape 2 also lock it for 7 days, next backup is stored on tape 4 and so on.

How do I have to set the writeprotection and the append settings of the Media Set?
Can you suggest me a better way to use the Media Set?

Greetings

Create a new Media Set. Set both periods to 6 days. The backup will run on each Monday on tape 1 overwriting it, on each Tuesday on tape 2, and so on. Set the backup job to overwrite.

Thank you.

How can I configure that the tape from the monthly Backup (last Saturday in month) will be ejected automaticly?
