I inherited the management of two labs back in April that are being backed up by Retrospect. I'm wasn't at all familiar with Retrospect but I have been able to figure out what I needed to know so far. There are two 6TB RAIDs connected to the Retrospect MacMini server, one for each of the two labs that I manage. The RAID for my faculty lab has been in use for a while, the other RAID is new and had not yet been set up for the student lab.
The FacultyRAID for the faculty lab filled up in June as I tried to back up everything in the faculty lab, including some drives that weren't previously being backed up, before having to break down the lab completely and move it to a new building over the summer. Each of my backup scripts paused and asked for me to Choose Media when the FacultyRAID filled up. So, as a temporary quick fix I pointed them to my new, unused StudentRAID. Each of my faculty lab computer media sets now have members on both RAIDs.
I recently got around to setting up Retrospect for the student lab and created media sets for them on the new StudentRAID. The StudentRAID unexpectedly filled up this month. So I freed up some space on my FacultyRAID by moving some non-Retrospect content off of it. When my faculty backup scripts ran out of space on the StudentRAID and asked me to Choose Media I pointed them back to my FacultyRAID which now has some free space. Now each of my faculty media sets have 3 members total on the two RAIDs.
For example, faculty lab computer #1, named FacLab1, has the following listed under the Members tab of Media Sets:
Name Location Space Used Space Free Space Total
1-FacLab1 /Volumes/FacultyRAID/ 499.2 GB 3.7 TB 4.1 TB
2-FacLab1 /Volumes/StudentRAID/ 131.4 GB 2.5 TB 2.6 TB
3-FacLab1 /Volumes/FacultyRAID/ 1.7GB 109.3 GB 111 GB
The total for all three of those members is 632.2 GB but the FacultyRAID only has 422GB free so there isn't enough space to create a new FacLab1a media set on the FacultyRAID and use a Copy Backup script to copy all three members from the original media set to it in order to consolidate it all on the FacultyRAID.
1) Is there a way to copy the 2nd and 3rd members of the original media set into the 1st member?
2) If not, is there a way to relocate the 2nd member from the StudentRAID to the FacultyRAID?
