I'm using forward incremental for all vm's daily with synthetic fulls on a Saturday. I'm only going to keep 2 restore points on disk to reduce the amount of data and I can then backup the entire repository.
I have 2 repositories that I'd like to backup on a daily basis using 6 daily tapes in a 2 week rotation and 10 weekly and 12 monthly etc. Is there a way of ensuring that for example Tuesday2 is used every other Tuesday etc? I want to be sure of which tapes are used on each day.
Due to the amount of data I had to use 2 tapes per day. I ended up creating a media pool per day. I then have a tape backup job per day that backs up the repositories to that pool.
So, am trying to decide which method to use as I want the latest full backup on each tape daily using as little space as possible on them and also allowing me to replicate as little as possible.
