Verifying backups

To ensure that your backup volumes are accurate and error-free, use the Backup Manager to verify the backup. 

NOTE: The Backup Manager always prompts you to verify the backup immediately after performing a backup.

In the Backup Manager:

  1. Select Verification from the Backup menu.

  2. If necessary, select or enter the correct ``Media Device''.

  3. When prompted, insert the media in the drive for each volume,

    The Backup Manager checks the volume to verify that it is readable.

  4. Once the volume is verified, click on OK to continue.
