Data Protector Express Schedule

I need help creating schedule. I have never used Data Protector Express 3.5 before. Basically I have ten tapes number 1 through 10 just want to run a full backup Mon -Friday at 11:00 pm. Can anyone tell me the correct settings for the schedule.

Thanks
Tim

Re: Data Protector Express Schedule

I have attached a screenshot that might help.

. Go to the Schedule screen of your backup job.
. Set the rotation type to "Custom Rotation"
. Click on the "Daily" box and set the backup type to "Full" and the number of rotation sets to 10
. Click on the Weekly, Monthly, and Yearly boxes and clear the box labeled "Enable Scheduling by "
. Click apply to set the schedule

IMPORTANT: Do not pre-format the tapes. Data Protector Express will format them and number them as it uses them. If you have already formatted them either erase them or go to the "Jobs and Media" page and delete them from the database.
