File backup and Management-Classes

Hi,

what happens with the files, included during the incremental backup with managementclass MC30_90 (30 versions, 90 days) when I change the managementclass to MC14_14 (14 versions, 14 days) ?

Will all older backup-versions (older than 14 days) be deleted or is the "new" managementclass only valid for new backed-up files ?

Many thanks in advance

Hubert

When expiration runs, it looks at the current values of the management class, and expires (deletes) those that exceed the retention either in duration or number of versions.

So the answer is yes. It will delete versions older than 14 days and it will also delete versions in excess of 14.

Thank you very much, marclant !

It is as i thought, but i wasn't absolutely sure about.....

Can I ask you another question ? What parameters (server and/or client) would be the best if having a MAC OS/X server with a mounted filesystem from StorNext. Here you can see the latest backup-details:

Wouldn't it be better to do a journal-based-backup ? Is it easy to configute at MAC OS/X ?
Maybe you have some hints for me...

Thank you very much !
