OK a newbie questions regarding backup's
1.correct me if i'm wrong but NTbackup (built-in) can't do bare metal install/recovery. i.e. completely different macine etc?
2. seeing as money is an issue, what third party backup sw, is recommended i.e. backup assist? veratis etc is not an option b/c of it's high cost.
3. this client has a a AIT tape system with 8 tapes they are a 9-5 operation. please advise on the strategy and rotations of tapes. I'v never had to recover from any major server issues and i'm looking for advise from my fellow battle hardened commrads.
4. is a full / normal back up is what they have going now every other day. but they are not changing tapes!?!?! and their system is split between a C:/ drive and a Raid 5 array for data. Are there any specific considerations I need to make to ensure proper backups and better strategy.
thank you in advance it's greatly appriciated.
