We have Windows Server 2008 Foundation Class. There is a SQL database that has a batch file that will update a backup copy of the database to a different drive (let's say D drive). There is also a folder on D which has some .DAT and .IDX files that I wish to back. I am currently backing up all the data to two externals. But I want to take it to a new level with a daily backup to take off site. (Please no cloud suggestions).
What I would like to do is to copy the important stuff to a DVD that will be removed every night or every morning. So my thought is some type of script. It will need to copy the SQL backup file and the folder on D drive to a folder and then burn this folder to a DVD every night (or every evening when if the script is manually executed). We don't have any special software other than what comes with the server.
I realize this may seem like a simplistic backup scheme, but I only need this currently until the end of this tax season (April 15).
I now open the floor to ideas...
thanks in advance.
