I'm thinking of purchasing the symantec system recovery server edition as it allows bare metal recovery onto another machine, which I'd like to test out.
I have a few queries
1. When I set the thing up to backup the entire server, am I looking at a 1:1 in terms of disk space? Say my C drive is using 120GB, will it also back up 120GB?
2. What's normal practice? Is it thru to backing up to a tape drive or a seperate hard drive on the network somewhere?
3. If saving to hard disk is best practice, what about off site backup?
4. When restoring to a new server (different one), do I just boot it up with the CD and then plug in the tape or hard drive? Please advise.
Sorry, multiple questions in a question... hope this is ok.
