Duplicate an LTO backup set to a new (identical) set?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I have a pair of LTO4 backup sets I use for long-term archiving—theyre identical sets in terms of the contents as one set is for onsite storage and one is for offsite storage. My onsite tape has become damaged, so I need to duplicate the offsite tape to a new onsite set. What's the best way to do this in Retrospect 9 so that I make an exact duplicate of the working set? I have two LOT4 drives connected to the Retrospect server. Is it as simple as creating a Copy Media Set script? Is there anything I need to do, in the script's Options, to ensure it's an exact duplicate?

 

Thanks,

Kristin.

Yes, it's that simple.

 

Be sure to use the "All Files" selector, which I think is the default. Otherwise there is nothing more you need to do. :)
