Dell XP Pro, 20 g on a 40 g drive plus 2 usb portable drives.
I have Ghost from Norton 2003 & tried it once unsuccessfully & do not plan to try it again.
Is there an existing, good thread describing very reliable instructions/procedures & time needed for business data backup ?
I back up data files weekly and hard drive soon.

While many disappointed about Norton Ghost, others such as Arconis true Image, Bootit-Ng will perform better this task for you.

We have nightly full backups in a PV132T autoloader which we take off site every day.

Each tape is in a monthly rotation schedule.

Once a month, a Sunday backup is taken completely out of the schedule and is stored in another off site location permantely. We can now go back over 3 years in monthly steps, and up to 31 days in daily steps.

In addition to this, we rsync our data to our main site backup server every night AND rsync it over to our disaster recovery site where we maintain a complete working set up.

On top of this, we also have a spare single tape device (PV114T) at our DR site in case the library fails.

It all comes down to what we can afford to lose and that is nothing. Esp my job!
