We need to keep weekly backups for 2 months and monthly backups for 1 year. Monthly is straight forward because we're not dealing with increments, however we need to have those weekly backups + increments.
So I was thinking of having 1 weekly full backup synthesized on tape once a month (first week) then the other weeks, just have the increments offloaded to tape. Also, would "as backup files appear" work in this scenario? It would be useful since we would be able to offload increments all week and send them offsite on Fridays
I have daily backups set to 14 restore points that we keep on disk.
I'm not sure where to start to configure these. Any help would be appreciated.
