Q1: How do I get the Backup Copy job to fire on the weekend so that it will provide full backups for offsite? My concern is that if I set it to Backup Copy schedule of once/day, then the RDX volume may fill up due to incrementals on Friday & Saturday, and not have space for backup of any changed data on Sunday.
Q2: If the RDX cartridges are not present Monday-Thurs (since I want all offsite backup sets to stay offsite as much as possible), will the Backup Copy job error out, or just wait for cartridge insertion on Friday?

I implemented the key and marked all days except Saturday & Sunday as disabled in the schedule of the backup copy job, but even after rebooting the Veeam backup server, I am still getting error messages every hour that the job failed ("Cannot connect to target backup repository."). The error makes sense since the RDX cartridges are removed and offsite, but I don't know why the job keeps retrying during the disabled schedule times.

If so, I need to make it a practice to always to flip the write-protect switch on those cartridges after a backup!
