Symantec System Recovery 2013 R2 188.8.131.52477. Win 7
Internal Data disk "F". I need to Incrementally backup to EXTERNAL USB drive "E" that I rotate on a weekly basis.
I have 2 external drive. Each label "E - SSR Backup". I need to rotate between the two drives on a weekly basis. That is Week 1 - Full plus daily incrementally backup to drive 1. Week 2 -- Full plus daily incrementally backup to drive 2. Week 3 - only incrementally (changes made in week 2 + new changes in week 3) backup to drive1. Week 4 - only incrementally (changes made in week 3 + new changes in week 4) backup to drive 2. Week 5 - only incrementally (changes made in week 4 + new changes in week 5)backup to drive 1. etc.
I read that SSR 2013 R2 should be able to do this. I there how to some place?
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the above link from 2011 and 2012 it was about:
1. Offsite copy is the best option here.
Use drive #1 as your permanently attached primary backup destination and drive #2 as the offsite copy location - this drive can be removed as and when required.
2. Doing FULL backup each time.
Neither apply in my problem. Any other suggestion. I thought SSR 2013 R2 solved the problem. From a posting Oct 2014
Things do change with the next version of the product (2013 R2) being released next month. This version will allow a single backup job to multiple drives on a rotation basis. You may want to wait for the release of R2 to try this out.
