I've done a lot of research and it seems that the built in Windows Backup utility cannot backup to an RDX drive without it thinking it is a DVD drive.
So, that said.
I currently backup a remote server using the Windows 2008 R2 backup utility to an iSCSI drive on that server.
For offsite storage, I would like to then copy the backups that are created there onto the RDX drive each night for DR purposes.
Can I copy the "WindowsImageBackup" folder and all of its contents to another device like the RDX and then if a restore is required from that offsite device would the backup utility be able to read that copy as if it were a valid backup? I'd assume it would require me to do a restore with the option of "a backup stored on another location" and then browse to it so that it catalogs it, etc.??
If #1 is possible, I'm guessing since the vhd file changes each night I'm looking at a full copy to the RDX "tape" each night. Correct?
Any other options you think would work better? 3rd party programs that work correctly with RDX devices that aren't costly?
