Scanning time

Recommended Posts

Every Friday, we do a "New Media Backup" of several clients to a set of tapes. This runs info Sunday mid day.

Every Monday to Thursday night we do a "Normal" backup to the same set of tapes. The problem is that the night isn't long enogh. Much time is spent simply scanning disks. Would it be possible for Retrospect to start scanning the next disk/client, while it still is backing up the previous disk/client? I realize the "Matching" can't take place until the previous disk/client is finished, but by overlapping the scanning phase, much time would be saved.

Is this possible? If not, this is a feature request.
