6. How to prepare for your first backup with Backup Exec
How much data needs to be backed up?
How long the backups take ?
How much storage is required ?
7. Required user rights for backup jobs
Act as part of the operating system.
Backup Files and Directories .
Restore Files and Directories .
Manage auditing and Security log .
Logon as a batch job (only for windows vista and later ).
9. Full Backup
Establish a baseline backing up all of data selected .
You should run a full backup when you
Add, modify, or remove any server roles or features.
Update the existing operating system using Windows Update.
Upgrade to a new version of the operating system.
13. Data Retention
How long to prevent data from expiring .
Overwrite Protection Period define how long to protect
data on media from overwrite.
Append Period define how long to append data on media .
14. Allocated Media is media that have current append and
overwrite protection periods .
Recyclable Media is media that have expired append and
overwrite protection periods .
Data Lifecycle Management (DLM ) is Feature that searches
for expired backup sets to delete from disk-based storage.
16. A recovery point objective (RPO) is the point in
time to which a service can be restored/recovered.
A recovery time objective (RTO) is the amount
of time is needed to have that service back
The BackupWindow is a period of time—with
a start and stop time—during which data can
be backed up.
18. Tape Rotation Strategy ensures that the company can access
data without fail .
The Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) is the most widely used
scheme for tape backup rotation.
22. Ransomware Resilience
Protects data on disc-based storage from
Ransomware attacks in two ways:
• Allows only trusted Backup Exec processes to write to
• Prevents external code from executing Backup Exec
