    Hi, i have a new server that i want to backup using daily monthly and yearly schedules (different node and policy of course).
    Can i use the same storage pool in the same policies, or do i have to create different stg pools?
    The reason i'm asking about it is that i want to save pool in my disks using the Deduplication.


    Thanks,
    Daniel.

    You can use a single storage pool if you want to.

    I don't think there is a "right" way to configure this, just a "better" way...and know one other than you can know which one is the best.
    I.E. I would split stgpools due to different data retentions.
    If you use just one pool you would end up on reclaiming old (monthly and yearly) data...and do not forget that you could use backupset instead of a new backup.
