My Backup Exec 2010 environment is currently setup to protect ~8TB of data on various servers/devices.
Our longest backup retention is 90 days.
Recently I was asked to produce proof that a file was backed up by Backup Exec from 9 months ago.
My job logs obviously don't have that information anymore.
I can configure BE Job logging to be detailed including directory and file but how do I keep the log or logs around for a longer period...say 1 year?
Do be aware that turning on detailed logging and increasing the log retention period would consume a lot of disk space. If it is occasional audit requests, it might be better to use CatTools to dump a catalog to prove that the file was backed up.
