Am I using correct backup methods?

Everything about backing up to tape

Am I using correct backup methods?

Hi,

I have created the following backup jobs for one virtual machine:
Backup to disk: Reversed incremental every day for a whole month
Backup to tape: the last sunday of the month

I want only the full backup from the reversed incremental job to be backed up to tape, and my question is:
When I create a backup to tape job (linked to the reversed incremental job), does VEEAM copy only the full backup (from the reversed incremental job) or does it backup the full backup + the incrementals files?

If I am doing it wrong, how can I setup the jobs so only the full backup goes to tape?

Thanks
Michael

Michael, VRB files are automatically skipped from processing by the backup to tape job. So only full backup will be copied on a weekly basis.

Thank you, so it looks as if I did it correctly.

What do you mean by on a weekly basis?

Sorry, I missed the fact that you're offloading backups to tape on a monthly schedule.
