Storing Catalog files on backup disks with the backup set

Recommended Posts

So I'm struggling with how to regularly copy my Retrospect catalog files from the default location where they are all stored, to the external disks we use for backup. This way, in case of disaster, I don't have to recreate the catalogs - they are right there on the disks. 

 

Why not have the catalogs created right on the backups disks with their corresponding backup sets? Is this in any way inadvisable? Pros? Cons?

 

thanks,

The drawback is if you happen to fill the disk so grooming comes into play. You are out of disk space and yet Retrospect needs to update the catalog file. This may fail since the catalog file is (usually) large.
