Possible to duplicate backup tapes

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I am wondering if Retrospect 5 has a way to duplicate a backup that went to tape the night before without actually doing another backup scheduled backup. Kind of a tape to tape duplication...

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

You need to have two tape drives. Then you go to Tools>Copy>Transfer and do a backup set transfer. Keep in mind that the copy will not contain any snapshots on the media, just inside the catalog of the destination set. This means that your "destination" set will not be able to use the "add snapshots" feature during restores.

That is fine this is just needed for a missed backup that is going to off sight storage. I assume that this means that if my backup runs on two tapes that I will need to have an additional two tape drives for this to work?

You can use just one destination drive during the transfer, we will prompt you to inser the 2nd destination tape.
