I would like to find a backup strategy that would make it easy for a user to recover any necessary files.
I would also like to be able to recover to bare metal if necessary.
What backup strategy should I use to accomplish this?
One economical approach that I can think of is to use ntbackup to do a full backup and on a regular basis do a differential backup.
In the event of a total wipe out, I would reinstall the operating system and then do a full restore of the Ntbackup backup.
Is there some product that would account for the changes that might happen in case a new machine is necessary with the same operating system so that the new and different system settings would not be destroyed?
