Tape Selection Procedure


  • I would like to do some tape backups for long term protection without doing any short-term disk protection.
    I am unclear about how DPM 2007 selects which tape to backup to, when it decides it can append to an existing tape and when it decides it must start writing to a new tape. Is there some documentation about this you could point me to?
    I would like to set up a protection group for backing up to tape once a week. I'd like each weekly backup to start at the beginning of a tape so that I can easily take the backup for a particular week offsite if I need to. Can I do this with DPM 2007?
