New member vs normal backup?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone explain the difference between these two.. i checked out the help file in v7.6 but for some reason this still isnt clear.

 

Thanks

Normal writes to the current disk/tape until it fills and then request new media. New Member always requires a new disk/tape

I'm having an issue with the latest version of 7.6.x...

 

I have done a recycle backup (the first one done).. it backed up 890GB of data..

 

There is 0.99TB free on the drive..

 

I have "normal" backups scheduled..

 

When the normal runs.. it sees that 192MB have changed since the day before..

 

but instead of writing to the 1-backup session.. it requests new media, stating that it tried to groom but couldnt free up enough space..

 

I have no idea why this is occuring..

 

There is enough space.. the drive is set to use up to 98% of the space..

 

it should just append to the existing backup set..

 

This is vista x64 sp1.
