Organizing and Backing Up Files
Posted: 09-11-2003, 01:57 PM
organizing and protecting our data. We have lost data from user error,
crashes caused by hardware failure, conflicts from software installation and
power surges. We haven't suffered any catastrophic loss, yet.
Finally, we have made the decision to get some professional backup software
to protect against both minor and catastrophic loss and want to store the
backups offsite. The backup software we have selected will protect us
against the corruption or loss of the OS, any software programs and add-ins
we have installed.
Does anyone know of a "best practice" strategy so we can set up a method of
backing up the data to one machine that we could designate as a combination
backup/fileserver? For example, is it possible to set up one machine where
all the data would reside and then backup the data from it onto DVD's and
store the DVD's offsite? We aren't in the position to buy an actual Win
Server right now. Thanks for any and all suggestions.
