We have noticed issues and it is a problem for us. The tape jobs are very long and overlap with other jobs.
PaulITGuy wrote:Also, has anyone else noticed it is difficult to control what goes on the tapes? What if I want to have just the latest full on a tape instead of all the fulls that have not yet gone to tape.

michaelryancook wrote:The option to only copy latest only affects the first run of the job. Does it not? After that if you are using reverse incremental or forward with active fulls you will get at least two fulls on tape after the active full. The number of fulls would be dependent on retention periods and the number of fulls since last tape backup.

michaelryancook wrote:Thanks Nikita. I do see it there. It would be nice to be able to expand the .vbk to see the protected VMs but this is better than nothing.
michaelryancook wrote:The script does do that. I was concerned that the latest backup may be the reversed incremental and if there is any corruption that has not been detected than I'd rather have the active full on tape. We are only using SureBackup on a few VMs at this point but I am probably being overly cautious.
