Can anybody recommend a backup drive for a HP ML310 running backup exec. They are not backing up more than 200GB.

They need to backup exchange and windows etc.

Hello ,

            You check with "Sony DDS SDT-7000/N DAT Tape Drive" or " 8TB TeraStation Pro Rackmount WSS Windows Powered Network Storage Server from Buffalo " for backing up exchange and windows.

Get yourself a USB dock, something like the one below:

Then you can buy several standard HD's you can swap in for your backups.

Just get 3 USB 500Gb External drives.
Then Rotate them
1 Connected
1 offsite
1 in transit

TBH - you could go for 1Tb drives, they are cheap and will give you some future proofing

I can only guess but I would expect 200Gb in around 2 hours. Of course an incremental backup would be less.

If you get a USB 3 dock as in the example I posted above, and your server has USB 3 ports, the speed will be approximately the same as if you were backing up to internal drives.

Of course the speed will vary, depending on what else your server is doing while backing up. Normally backups don't have a high priority when other things are running.

I don't believe that server has USB 3.0.
I may be mistaken.

If it doesn't, you can always add a USB 3 card...
