Problems with Transfer BackUp Sets


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am quite new Retrospect user. I have a problem with transfer backup set and I am a little bit confused. I am forced to take full backups from clients to disk every weekday and weeked. These disk backup sets are transfered to tape on the same day using transfer backups sets (with recycle/full option).

 

I don´t understand why transfered amout of data is so small. One disk backup set may be 100-250 GB large, but only 2-3 GB data is transfered to tape? All disk backup sets are acting in same way.

 

Compression and preventing duplications can´t be explanation or can they?

Are you doing a "Normal" transfer of backup set? (As opposed to "Recycle" or "New Media").

Then it's normal. Only files modified or added since the last transfer is transferred.

 


No, it really is Recycle transfer of backup set. One guy tried to explain this kind of behavior with a synthetic full feature, but I don´t understand how this could be true. Ok, if Retrospect doesn´t really erase tapes at the beginning of recycle transfer it might be possible.
