Backup NW to USB drives with Arcserve?
Posted on 2006-06-30
Like many people I've had lots of problems with tape drives, and backup software.
I support several NWSB sites and an considering replacing the tape drives with rotated USB external drives. I've done this on a couple of Windows SBS systems, and it seems to work OK, and is cost effective.
The software the clients own is CA Arcserve. NWSB 6.0 & 6.5 are included on the sites I'm considering.
So, a couple of questions. Can you even use a USB drive on the Server of a NWSBS system, and, if so, what drivers do I need?
Has anyone else done this yet??
Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.
