Hi guys,

I would like to know that included in the backup with "stsadm-o backup" and I should backup over the outside (eg Folder 12 - Assembly files), you need to backup the dll in the bin folder or resx files in the folder GlobalResourcesofapplication ? .

 Because yesterday I made a backup with stsadm and restore me to perform some dll missing then I understand I should like to make the inside and outside.

 On the other hand I would like to know where Disaster Recovery is the most correct way?

 1 - Restore NTFS from the Site directory
 2 - Restore NTFS Folder from 12
 3 - Restore NTFS Folder from GAC
 4 - DB Restore Content Database.

 It's ok? in particular order?

stsadm -o backup, allows you to backup a site collection that you can restore that said site collection to a new farm or and existing working farm.

If you have the site collection backups then you can rebuild the sharepoint farm, get it up and running and then do restores of your site collections.

You will then your site collections will be back as they were before.

rather than re-invent the wheel, why not take a look at one of the full backup utilities out there in the internets:

in addition to running full stsadm backup, you would want:
12-hive
IIS

When you say full stsadm backup is = stsadm -o backup -url http://site -filename c:\site  it's this?. And the bin folder inside the application is included on stsadm backup?

that command will backup a site collection.

and what do you mean by the "bin" folder?  the stsadm backup captures the data in the SQL database....

see here for recommendations on a backup strategy:
http://blah.winsmarts.com/2007-10-Backup_and_Restore_Strategies_in_MOSS_2007.aspx

it has more extensive recommendations that what i posted earlier.
