What is the best way to backup a SCSI Drive (80pin) to a SATA drive?

We have a server with SCSI drives and a PC with SATA drives we use to backup other SATA drives... Is there a good adapter for this?

Unless you are physically attaching SATA drives to the backup system, then the disk controller is not an issue.  Take the SCSI vs SATA out of the equation and answer it from perspective of what is the best way to backup the PC.

There are adapters, but quite expensive.

But: why getting the SCSI drive out of the server?

It may be easier to grab a sata2usb adapter which is very cheap.

Then connect the satadisk to the server over USB and back-up it that way.

I don't know why you would make a physical copy, but you will for sure have your reasons.
