Step 6. Specify Archiving Options

At the Options step of the wizard, specify archiving and media automation options:

  1. Select the Use Microsoft volume shadow copy (VSS) check box to enable backup of files with the help if Microsoft shadow volume copies. This option enables backup of files locked by application and provides file-level quiescence. This possibility can only be applied for files from servers running under Windows Server 2003 or later Windows-family OSs.
  2. Select the Eject media upon job completion check box if the tape should be automatically ejected from the tape drive and placed into a slot when the job finishes.
  3. Select the Export current media set upon job completion check box if you want to pull out the tapes with the current media set from the tape device, for example, to move to a storage location. The tape device will eject the tapes that belong to the current media set when the media set is closed.

If you want to export tapes on specific days only (for example, every Saturday), click Days and schedule export on the necessary days.

Note that with this option selected, a new media set is started after each export.
