6 tape rotation

Recommended Posts

Windows 2003 Server or XP Pro with Retrospect 6.5


I want to do a full backup each day onto Sony AIT1 35/90GB Tapes


I want to use 6 tapes Mon-Thurs, Fri1 and Fri2


I want to hold 1 Friday tape offsite for safety.


What is the best way to do this or is there another recommended way?


Thanks for any help.

Just set up a 5 day rotation as outlined in the following tutorial:



Make sure you go in and change all of the schedules to be "recycle backups" - a full backup.


For the friday 2 tape you can just add it to the rotation above using the schedule or you can set up another script just for it.
