Best backup strategy for a Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape setup

Recommended Posts



I am fairly new to Retrospect, I'm using Retrospect 7.5. Here is what I would like to do:


Create a Disk-to-Disk backup for all of my servers ( I currently have a 1.3TB array for this)

Then I assume I would want to do a Transfer Backup Set to tape ( but do I do recycle???)

I would like to be able to keep one full weekly for a month, then a full monthly each month for a year.

I am using a LT02 drive (200-400GB) per tape, and a full backup of all servers is approx 135GB.

Can anyone give me a suggestion on how to set this up, how many backup sets do I need.. Thanks in advance.
