why does it try to erase?

Recommended Posts

I did a complete backup using a script (i ran it right when i constructed and saved the script)


it took 28 hours.....


within those 28 hours there are files that are updated - so instead of waiting until 3am for it to run - i ran the script manually.. however, it went to the first tape in the backup set and tried to erase it!


why doesn't it just look for updated files and back those up?


am i missing some option? i cant seem to find it if so....

Are you doing a recycle backup? That is the only time Retrospect would try to erase a tape.
