Could anyone recemmoned a good backup schelule with the following.

I have 5 full sized backup tapes enough for my full backups.
I have 10 smaller tapes which i was using for differential backups.

What I would like is a well structered backup that would also take into account a schedule for site backups (i.e. how often they should be brought home & returned)
