we have a client with a file server 2003 , they currently have a system state backup but would like to take the files and folders offsite on a rotation. They recently requested the following: "They would like a backup cycle so that they would keep weekly backups for 5 weeks, and monthly backups for 3 months. They could cycle through backup drives, changing them once per week, to ensure that they capture full backups each week. Last week of the month, they disconnect this drive and store as a monthly backup for 3 months before overwriting. This will give them options for restore points if ever they are hacked"
My Questions are , what software should we be looking at, considering if the backup is of flat files should we always do a full backup and not incremental.
any particluar software we should use (ie robocopy)?
How many drives would we need ?
and... could you help clarify what the rotation plan would look like?
