How to backup Exchange - with Tapes

I've set a new Exchange Server up and am wondering the best approach regarding tapes.  Prior to the box being rebuilt it was a file server as well as Exchange Server and I used the

Mon - Thrs,
Week 1 -4,
Month 1 -12 method of naming the tapes.

I'm wondering if this is how you guys manage your exchange tape backups as well? Would this be the best way to proceed?  I'm thinking that if I proceed in this manor I can (if need be) create a recovery Storage group, restore an IS from Month 2 (for example) and rip out the email that is needed into the production IS.  It seems like the way to go but just want to check this is the best way of managing Tapes/Exchange Backup

Cheers

Hey Rob,

You have the theory right for backing up, you can always restored to the RSG assuming you do full IS backups each night.

What I normally do (depending on how paranoid the client is) is to have 4 weeks worth of tapes, and a tape for the first business day of the month.

At any point in time, I can go back 4 weeks - or to the first week of any previous month.

Generally, where I have this, I also have deleted item retention set to 35 days - this way everything should be on the tapes.
