Dump Levels for Daily, Discrete Backups

The following example shows a schedule where you capture only a day's work on different tapes. In this case, sequential dump level numbers are used during the week (3,4,5,6) with a lower number (2) on Friday.

Note -

In the following example, you could have used the sequence 6,7,8,9 followed by 2, or 5,6,7,8 followed by 3. Remember, the numbers themselves have no defined meaning; you attribute meaning by ordering them in a high/low sequence.
