  • Can I use same TAPE to backup day by day in DPM? ex: When I backup Tuesday, using the same TAPE I used Monday, the Monday will be errased.

  • You mean that you want 1 day retention only?

    What's the purpose of tapes in that case? Can't you use short-term protection on disk for this?

    Anyway it can be done using short term on tape strategy. Select 1 day retention and your previous tape will be expired at the time of the backup.


    I would advise at least 2 days retention as you are not protected in case of a problem during the backup.
