Disc/tape 1 = Monday backup of daily file changes. (Incremental backup)

Disc/tape 2 = Tuesday backup of daily file changes. (Incremental backup)

Disc/tape 3 = Wednesday backup of daily file changes. (Incremental backup)

Disc/tape 4 = Thursday backup of daily file changes. (Incremental backup)

Disc/tape 5, 6, 7 = Friday backup of weekly file changes stored securely off-site. (Incremental weekly backup)

Disc/tape 8, 9, 10 = Full backup on the fourth Friday of each month stored securely off-site. (Full monthly backup)

One extra tape is used for an incremental backup if there is a fifth Friday in a month.
