My backup did not auto start last night.
What I did when the tape drive died, was the following:
Installed a USB drive.
Created directories: MON, TUE, WED, THU, FRI
Created devices pointing to each directory.
Created schedules for each day pointing to corresponding directory.
The only problem I am having is for the scheduled backups to auto start.
One thing I noticed is the default device does not change from each scheduled day. If I set THU's device path for the default, then THU will auto start. Next day, FRI won't start unless I go in and manually change the default device to FRI. Is there a better way to do this?
