    Hi all.


    I once saw a Commvault excel sheet, which could help you calculated the amount of storage needed for a given amount of front end data. Anyone know where to find this?


    Or how do you calculate how much storage space is needed for a given amount of front end data?


    If for instance, I have 1 TB of data to be backed up using dedub, 6 incr/1 full  pr. week, kept for 6 weeks. 1 Full monthly kept for 5 years. How would you calculate the storage needs?
