I run a manual job on the last working day of the month to perform a "backup repository" tape job to an external LTO-6 tape drive for archiving puposes.
This job just copies the whole repository to tape. All data in the repository are from "reverse incremental" backup jobs during the month.
Since the upgrade to V8, the "job report" for the tape job has a comment "synthetic full" for some of the backups.
Since this job should just copy the repository to tape and I do not have any incremtal backups with synthetic full, could someone explain what this means?
Many thanks for your help
