We are running SBS 2003 SP1 with Exchange Server 2003 SP1 on one single server machine. Backup is done twice daily to an external Maxtor Hardrive (Onetouch II, 250 Gb) via usb 2.0. Although I prefer the firewire connection, we were concerned with bios level access in case we need to restore the files. We use both the built-in Veritas Backup for Windows Server 2003 (once a week for full backup of server system itself) and Dantz Retrospect 7.0 for Servers (twice daily file back up and exchange mailboxes).
I have looked at many so-called "mission critical" backup software packages incl. CA's ARCserve and Veritas's BackupExec.
For now, I am testing Symantec's Live State Recovery - Advanced Server.
I was wondering about various IT pros opinions on what they use to backup a small office net.
Advice will be well appreciated!
