Hi Everyone,

How do you perform your offsite tape backup strategy in your office ?

My Backup strategy is by put the tape daily overwrite with 3 weeks retention policy (the data that is written is always full to the tape).

I'm using Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R2 with one LTO-4 tape drive.
the tape involved is total 5 weekdays tape x 4 weeks.

Backup Set week1
Monday1, Tuesday1, Wednesday1, Thursday1, Friday1
.

.
Backup Set week4
Monday4, Tuesday4, Wednesday4, Thursday4, Friday4

As for the offsite I sent the tape backup set to the branch office in difference city using next business day courier every end of the week and then the branch office send me the oldest backup set to my HQ.

Any kind of comments will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

AWT
