Compare when using more than one tape for the same backup set


Recommended Posts

This is the first time my backup set spans more than one tape.


When the first tape filled up, Retrospect asked for a second tape. Then, when the backup finished using the second tape, it asked me for the first one to do file comparison. As I'm writing this, I'm still waiting for the verification on the first tape to end, I presume it will ask me for tape #2 to do file comparison on it.


Wouldn't it be nice if it did the comparison on each tape as it goes on, instead of asking first to change tapes and then later to change them again? I mean, it's just comparing files between the tape and the files on the backup client, it doesn't matter if it's going to use two, three or more tapes...


Of course I wouldn't want to turn off File Verification.
