Best Practice in tape backups

Recommended Posts

I am currently reviewing my tape backup process, and wanted to get some input from the community.


Currently I use a RAID system for day to day backups, and then perform a tape migration (Transfer only newest files) at the end of each week.


At the end of six month (June/Dec) I take all of the tapes and put them into the liybrary and build a consolidation set, by running the “transfer only newest files” setting again.


This has worked ok, over the past, but started to be a problem when I needed to restore a file, and found that the snapshot was invalid.


I wanted to see what other users of Retrospect are using to accomplish their archiving process, and what you all have found to work well


Thanks in advance
