Backup Destination Dive(s) replaced - Start Chain anew?

Post by Wad4iPod » Dec 08, 2011 5:08 am

Hi,
Our backup destination drive(s) have been replaced. We have 2 backup jobs: A Sunday Full - and a M-Thu incremental; Friday Full.
I need to start the backup chain anew.
It seems somewhat obvious that I would right-click on each job and select 'Perform Full Backup" to do so. Is this correct or am I missing something?

Thanks much.

Yes, you should execute the "Perform Full Backup" command manually, otherwise the job will fail due to missing VBK file. Btw, if you are on v6 and have at least one successful run of your jobs, before changing the drive you could copy your old backups to the new drive and map the jobs to the existing files to avoid running full VBK for your second incremental job. Thanks.
