I've been doing some reading on backup copy jobs, which may be the reason I am so completely turned around and confused (there seems to be an infinite number of directions and opinions). I am trying to come up with long term archiving to tape. I have a daily backup job that runs and keeps 35 restore points and takes an active full backup every Saturday.
Here's what I want to do:
I want to keep 12 monthly backups on disk, and keep 84 (7 years) full monthly backups on tape. How many jobs do I need to accomplish this? What should I set my copy interval to so that I can be sure I'm getting the restore points I want? How do I specify that these should be FULL backups?
