BE 2010 R3 - Complete Noob Question
April 10, 2014 05:55AM

I have been asked to setup a backup running on a server - it isn't heavily used, but is important to our company non the less.

The server is a Dell with Server 2008 installed, along with Backup Exec 2010 R3.

We have a Dell RD1000 Power Vault with 2 x 500gb Media Drives.

What I had thought about doing was setting up a weekly backup with daily instrumentals that would run and be finished by 6pm. Then setting up another to run around 12pm to do the same. Then in the morning, one of the selected office workers comes in and removes the overnight disk and puts it in their car and inserts the daytime disk. At 6pm when they leave the office, they remove the daily disk to take home and insert the nightly disk. That way there is always an off site backup which should be up-to-date to the last day in case of a fire etc.
The reality is, can it be setup like this? And what will happen if they forget to remove a disk and say left the daytime disk in by mistake?

What is the best practise with two backup media's?
