Re: External drive out of space

Yes, it is an incremental backup - forgot to include this information before. Maybe merge backups is what I want to do - if it will include any files that were only in backup #2 and not in any subsequent backup. However, why did backups 2 to 125 ALL get deleted? That is not at all what I expected, w...

Re: External drive out of space

Well, over 1 year has passed since I implemented the solution below for the daily backups (archive bit reset, limit to 125 backups, do not merge) and it did not work as expected or desired!

Re: External drive out of space

Thanks - that is what I suspected. What about my last 2 questions though? 1. Since I have local catalogs already, how can I transition to catalogs on the external hard drives without losing information about what backups exist? I.e., is there a way to rebuild catalogs from the backups on a disk? 2. ...

External drive out of space

We are having a problem with our backups. Here is the set-up: 1. Daily backups are incremental and running on to 3 external USB drives which are switched daily, except Thursday. 2. Weekly backups are full and running onto 5 external drives which are being switched each Thursday according to a modifi...
