Daily Backup in tape

Postby gpuesto » Tue Feb 16, 2016 9:44 pm

It is possible to keep daily backups to tape?
I have a tape drive of 6.25 TB and my daily backup is 100 GB

Uranium erases the tape at every backupe execution. You can schedule daily backups but you won't be able to retain backups for more than a day. At least not directly written on the tape.

We suggest to back up the data to a local or network drive with a good data retention policy and than to schedule a copy of the backup folder to the tape, every day. This setup will make you able to restore older files.

Best regards
