Perhaps I am missing something here. We are a 50/50 mac/pc shop running both Retrospect and Veritas for backups. Veritas keeps prior backup sets automatically so there is no need to restore them from tapes. We keep two years of sets.


Retrospect appears to not do this. At least I've not read or heard of it keeping old catalog sets beyond the last backup. As a temporary fix to this delema, I am manually copying the weekly backup sets to an archive and renaming them to the date of the backups. This works, since it would take 24 hours to restore a catalog set off 8 tapes. Very tedious indeed.


Will 8 keep catalog sets?


Can anyone enlighten this subject?
