Best Practice for PST files

We have the same problem that many companies do: We use Exchange, but we also use PST's for archiving. We're a small site, and don't currently want a full Exchange archiving solution, so using Outlook's archival abilities is great.

However, we now need to worry about backing up those PSTs. We don't backup desktops however, so this presents a problem.

How is this generally handled?

Should we setup a GPO that replicates this data to a network share?

One problem with this approach is that you need a local cache version, and copying a huge PST every logon/logoff could present a problem.

Thoughts?
