New full backup

Post by wvyhonsky » Tue Oct 02, 2012 12:03 pm

Hi -

I am doing incremental backups daily to a external drive. About once a month or when the drive is almost full I want to use a new drive and start over with a new full backup, and then continue with the incrementals. What is the best way to do this without having to edit the backup job? Thanks!

Hi,

When you change the drive, just open Backup Properties->Advanced
In the "Run action before backup" section, select "Clear backup" and "Run only once".
Press Save.
That will delete the old backups from the catalog and a new full backup will be performed.
After that, if you use the Incremental type, incremental backups will be performed.
