Running the Media Set Wizard

The Media Set Wizard guides you through the process of creating a new media set, and may be helpful if you are new to Backup Exec or are unfamiliar with the concepts and terminology of media sets. Before you run this wizard, you should understand media overwrite protection and append periods.

See Media overwrite protection.

If you do not need a wizard to set up a new media set, you can create it manually.

See Creating media sets.

To run the Media Set Wizard

  1. On the Tools menu, point to Wizards.

  2. Click Media Set Wizard, and then follow the instructions.

    If you set the media overwrite protection level to Full, you must have blank media ready and online before the first backup job runs. If you plan to use imported media, you must inventory it first.
