hope you can help me understand and address my problem.
I have some backup jobs in forever incremental mode, daily schedule, 21 restore points.
I need a full backup to tape EVERYDAY, so I configured the tape job (I have a standalone LTO6 drive) in order to use Virtual Synthesized Full Backup (both FULL and INCREMENTAL checked in the Media Pool section of the tape job settings). First I created only one tape job and I configured it to create a full backup from monday to tuesday (saturday and sunday are non working days). The first week is ok, but starting from the second week, the job writes to tape 2 .vbk for every backup job. That's not ok because a single tape is not enough to contain all the data.
So I created a tape job for each week day, and every tape job create a Virtual Synthesized Full Backup for the day before: same problem... (look at the attached picture...)
Mediaset retention is 6 days (I use just 5 tapes, of for each day from monday to friday), after a week I want to overwrite the tape.
I just want that the last full is synthesized to tape, but seems that Veeam synthesized the last one and the vbk of one week before...
Thank you for helping me.
