Daily full backup on tape

Veeam Logoby expert » Tue Jun 07, 2016 9:54 am


we have configured the backup to disk job with forward incremental and periodic synthetic full/active full backup option. We need also a daily full backup on tape.
So, when I won't use virtual full (that is not possibile with periodic synthetic full/active full backup) and instead archive the incremental backups and the LATEST full backup on tape I am right that I have a daily full backup on tape?

best regards,

If you copy backups to tapes daily you will have the same set of full and incremental backups on tapes.
If you need daily full backups on tapes, you should change the source backup job mode to reverse or forever forward incremental.
