Discrepencies in reported backups

Recommended Posts



When I look at the backups in a media set it doesn't match the backups that were run. I have a disk to disk tape array where I ran two immediate backup scripts on two different sources and then dumped to tape but the tape set shows about 20 backups on it that I did NOT do. Is there a bug or something that reads media set backups incorrectly?

Unless you perform a Recycle backup or manually recycle the media set, its catalog will retain all previous backups that were in that media set's catalog (and that presumably also remain on your tapes). A Copy Backup script—as one would be likely to use in a D2D2T arrangement—does not offer a recycle option for the destination media set. By choosing to "copy most recent backups," you will not eliminate what's already in the media set.
