DiskRetry options in version 6 and Full disks
Would I be right in assuming that if the backup disk gets full and the DISKRETRYCOUNT > 0 then it will continue to try to write to the disk until the retries count is passed?
Most of our problems have come from no disk space on our Development servers so the backup fails. For a database of over 200Gb creating a 20Gb backup and having a space problem and the software continuing to keep running is not good.
I have had occasions when a backup fails because of not enough space but the partial backup is not deleted causing further disk space problems. Having failed backups delete the partial backup would be a very good addition to SQL Backup.
