We currently use BackupExec software to manage our nightly backups using tape drives for storage. Lately it seems like we have to troubleshoot a lot of proplems and for a backup system I don't want to have to worry about it. On a Windows 2000 machine, are there other software packages that we could use other than BackupExec that may be better? Or is BackupExec the best? If I just need to troubleshoot and clear all the errors I will, but if there is a better alternative I would like to know.
Any alternative should be able to backup from several directories on different servers and needs to be able to use tape drives. If the brand / model of tape drives makes a difference just let me know and I will post the specs.
Thanks for your input.
