I'm having some difficulty understanding the Catalog. My minimum requirements are to be able to restore from B2D for 1 month and be able to see at least 3 months in the catalog (for Tape) in order to meet our SLAs.
I have my Catalog set to truncate after 3 months. If I try to restore, I can see back to 07/13/2012. If I look in my \Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Catalogs folder I can see catalogs dating back to 02/22/2012.
Why can't I restore from 02/22/2012? Why the discrepancies? What is the Catalog actually looking at?
(I am more interested in understanding than trying to accomplish a particular task.)
