Hi All,

I inherited a Server 2003 box that runs everyhting for a organization. They have exchange, sql, Active Directory and Company data being ran off that single box. Amazingly there had not been any backups at all for the box. I would like to use ntbackup for time being but I do not have much experience setting that up manually.

My goal is to have a full backup ran weekly on Fridays and differentials ran in between. They have a total of 530GB for a full backup onto a 2TB External Drive. I would like to have a months worth of recovery. I would accomplish this by using 2x 2TB externals on rotation. So my question is how would I configure ntbackup to do this? Would I create a full backup task for Friday and than seperate differentials followed by the same configuration for the next week without choosing to overwrite existing backups?
