Feature request: Disk label mentioned in Status reports

Post by martinic » Feb 01, 2018 1:29 pm

If a Repository is backed by rotated hard drives, it would be very useful to see the label / naming of the hard drive that was backed up to, in reports and mail status reports.

That way you can easily identify which drive is causing errors, or even detect if someone hasn't been rotating/switching the external harddrive and the backups on the other media are getting too old.

Hi Peter, thanks for the feedback. Currently this information should be available in the log, I agree that sometimes it would be handy to see it in the report.

Unfortunately it doesn't show in the logs either; I thoroughly searched for the known disk labels without result. Thanks anyway!

I hope rotated target disk labels will be added to the reports soon.

Would really love this feature also.
It would also allow you to quickly recognise whether or not the person who is assigned to rotate disks has in fact done so.
