If a user creates a new folder, is it automatically added?

Postby Bobc » Thu Apr 05, 2007 4:31 am

I am currently splitting a single directory backup over two tapes due to lack of tape capacity.

It is a working directory of all our active engineering (CADD Files) projects. As such I have about 24GB of data. I am nearly split 50-50 on two tapes, but concerned if one of my engineers adds a new project folder, will BA automagically find the new folder and add it to a backup set?

Thanks

Thanks Raj,

I think I may have to be more hands-on. I say this as the topmost directory on our network is 'Projects' with each project under that.

Projects
|
--Andros Isel
|
--Atrium-NPB
|
--Avonlea
|
--Baywinds
|
--Binks GC
|
--Collier
|
etc.

'Projects' itself is not selected as a backup target. I am selecting directories under that one.

So, if I have Andros, Atrium, and Avonlea on one tape, then Baywinds, and Binks on the other tape, and then add a directory called 'Collier' (for example) is added, neither tape will automagically grab that new drectory, no? I assume this is the case and as such I'll have to make sure the engineers notify me when/if they add a project directory.

Thanks for reviewing this.
