Frist if you do NOT allow different retention periods to mix on your tapes you do not need different pools
But if you do more then one retention period in a night it will be hard for you to know which is which in case different policies and pools would be easier.
I do retention 2 weeks every week night
On the weekends I do retention 6 months
So on Monday when I take tapes out of the library I know they go off site for 6 months.
I know every week day when I take tapes out they go off site for 2 weeks.
My one exceptions is on Sundays I make a tape that has 7 years retention
This one has its own policy, its own Volume Pool and the tapes have custom barcodes on them that make it easy to spot.
( I don't use barcodes that come the tapes but get mine custom made)
using color or letters at the beginning of the barcode makes it easy for me to spot
So this 7 year tape and my Hot Catalog Backup tape use their own pool and have custom barcodes that makes it very easy for me to spot. So I can then pick out that one tape on Monday and send it off for 7 years.
