What is the best way to back up 1TB of data?
Posted on 2009-02-20
Our server has two drives--one for the OS (Windows 2003 Server) and one for our data. The data drive has a capacity of 1.5TB. We are currently using 900GB. Backing up our data has become difficult. Using Windows Backup, the process takes 5+ days. Additionally, the external drives that I use for backup only have a capacity of 750GB, so I cannot even perform a complete backup. I have never backed up the full 900GB but I need to ASAP. We need access to all of the data; we cannot archive the older stuff and move it off the server. What are my options, both hardware and software?
