    Cool Open Source Backup?

    Hi Guys,

    Just setup a 2008 R2 server and need to backup to tapes, the server (when 2003) used to use ntbackup.

    Looking for a open source piece of software to backup to tapes on 08R2 or something rather cheap.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think you are going to find anything decent for free. For cheap, I would pick either Microsoft's DPM 2010 or BackupAssist.
