I have a server approx. 140 gig HDD. Using backup Exec 12.5, it takes two tapes to backup (the tapes are 200 uncompressed and 500 compressed). Have I missed something here, where does the extra 60 gig go?
Friday Full Backups are:
o Full - Using archive bit (reset archive bit)
o Verify after backup completes (ticked/checked)
o Compression: Hardware (if available, otherwise software)
Am I missing something?
Thanks for your help.
Surely a 140 gig hard drive would fit onto a 200 gig tape tho!?
Are you backup up the shares on the server or just the drives? Also is it an exchange server
in the device and media section of the job do you have overwrite media or append to media.Also what are you media set properties, do you have overwrite protection on and append period.

May be a silly question but you're not doing incremental backups during the week onto the same tapes are you? If so and you have a no-overwrite policy for 2 weeks, then this could be the cause of the "full" tapes.
I backup the Drives and the shared folders within this drive (such as pupils' work), and it's not an exchange server.
I'm using the overwrite media.
The full backups are being done on seperate tapes than the daily differential backups.
I've set the overwrite protection for a month for the full backups (however, when I run the backups the disk I'm using is set back to scratch for testing purposes).
Quick thought, is the 140GB compressed?
No this is the uncompressed data. The backup works fine for all other servers, it's just this one server.
