Re: BitCalm Gone Bye Bye?

It's alway bad news when backups fail to restore. You have my commiserations.

Even when you can restore lost files it doesn't mean your backup is ok. I once had an SA who made a curious typo in his backup and restore script. Instead of writing to the tape device he was writing to (and reading from) a rather big file on the server. I twigged what was going on when I realized that he could recover files really quickly but never ones from more than a day before. All of the daily, weekly and monthly tapes he had stored away were blank.
