Help me get out of a £1400 mistake. Nas + Server 2008 backup = NOT
I just bought two new NAS boxes to enhance our backups. We regularly backup to tape and NAS boxes. However the Seagate BlackArmor 440 does not allow you to format it's volumes in NTFS.
The problem is that Server 2008 backup will only back up on to drives that are NTFS! :mad:
I am going to have to come up with some convoluted method of doing this as I can't send the boxes back, so wondered if anyone had any suggestions?
I was thinking along the lines of backing up to my original NAS boxes and then having a script that could move that backup to the BlackArmors. This way keeping my archives on the BlackArmors and my daily backups on the TeraStations.
Can anyone suggest any other options I might consider?
