Hi

Does anybody here have any experience using Backup Servers.
We just  sign a contract with this company, they will send a seerver and install  it in our server closet, they will back up localy and then take that data outside.

They will come later today to install it.

I am trying to find a good strategy to backup my data.

They will back up only data no images.
Should i change the path of all workstations, so their My documents will be store in one server and been backed up.
I am asuming this soilution does not reachout to workstations to grab their data and back it up.

Any suggestions

any strategy

please comment

First of all the company doing the backup for you should have enough knowledge to do this properly without outside interference from us or you. If they don't have the knowledge I wouldn't use them!

Anyway, as there are servers in your company, you should enforce their use so no data of any importance is stored on local workstations. All data must be stored on the servers. Because of that there absolutely no reason to back up workstations. If you have users with laptops who don't always have a connection to your LAN you must make sure that whenever they are connected their data is synced to your servers.
