Multiple tape jobs or just one?

Hi,

I'm wondering, what it is "best practice" when creating tape jobs. Create tape job for every backup job I have like

Daily Backup A --> Daily Tape A (media pool X)
Daily Backup B --> Daily Tape B (media pool X)

Or create single tape job and include all my backup jobs like

Daily Backup A --> Daily Tape (media pool X)
Daily Backup B --> Daily Tape (media pool X)

Are there any benefits in some variant or is there no difference?

Thanks for answer.

Hello Michal,

No difference, except you will keep all eggs in one basket :wink:

Since this expression is meant to imply possible negative consequences though, I wanted to clarify that there is nothing negative in this approach.
