we are in the process of implementing the backup facility for our laptop and few desktop users . we have discussed few method and didn't come to the final decision on the above due to some issues raised
I have given the solution as backing up all the users selected folder in to server and then server will backup to tape for off site purpose . some issues are listed below
backup type : full backup every Friday /then incremental
hard part is some of the PCs are not online to backup .
average size of the backup
selected folders will work : some of the users will not save information in to that folder
select the entire PC : issues
cloud will expensive to have due to the link charges ?
hard disk to tape will not supported by most of the top vendors ?
