I have Server 2008 running backup Exec 2012 with the latest Service pack. We have a number of jobs running in the following configuration,
File Server: Server 2008 > Backup Exec > Qnap SAN storage > USB Drive
So the backup Exec server drops the .bkf on a local QNAP storage device. We then have a scheduled task to copy the files from the QNAP to a USB using the local software with the Qnap device, This in its self works fine.
The issue i have is on the restore process.
If we take the USB from the QNAP (~2 weeks old) and connect direct in to the Backup Server we can add the storage in, move the files to a default BE folder then inventory and Catalogue. This shows the backup (YAY)
IF the backup retention is ~1 week (as such now out of the retention period) BE decides to delete the backups....
Is this correct?
