I'm trialing Backup Exec with a view to implementing as our main backup and recovery system, replacing Windows Server Backup.
We currently have one server with does everything, as in:
I have purchased another server to be used as a backup server. This server has the following specs
Windows 2012 R2
1 Volume for the OS and applications
1 Large Volume for backup jobs
I plan to backup overnight to the local storage and then duplicate that backup job to a external USB 3.0 HDD, during the day, with one external HDD for each day (Mon-Fri)
I've created the jobs and everything was going okay until todays duplicate backup job.
After reading the manual I have created a new storage pool to include the external HDD's, the problem is that this storage pool by default is including the local storage as well, so when the duplication job runs its using that storage and I'm running out of space.
I cannot remove the Server Storage from the Offsite Storage Pool, please see picture attached.
I think I might have messed up by not creating a pool when I first started using Backup Exec
Can anybody help as I need to remove the local storage from the offline pool.
