Each Friday after the Backup to Disk (Reverse Incremental) runs, a tape job follows it. It takes until the following Saturday evening to complete. However, lately it has been getting to the point where I must use 8 empty tapes (382.0 GB Capacity) for this job to complete. This causes issues as I can no longer have our cleaning tape in the autoloader. Is there a way to lower the amount of data that gets backed up via tape? I see that our Friday backup is only 2.17 TB and if I could backup [b]only[b] that backup, it would be extremely helpful.
Also, when I look at the tape backup Backup Files it states the Daily Backup job that runs (which is also the Friday backup) and it says that it is only 2.2 TB.. If that's the case, then we wouldn't be having this problem, so why is it backing up more than that?
P.S. I submitted a case, but never received a case number.
