Best practices

Hello

I am new to this company. Their back up system seems strange to me. It looks like they are backing up several things for no aparant reason. Here is the situation.

They have tap back up and image backup. They run full tap back up every week. Image back up creates image of all servers. I have been told that image back up saves C drive only. No data is saved. Just OS and programs. Now full weekly back up saves these images also every week. What I am wondering is that why we need to save full images on tap every week. I think it should be enough if we only do lets say once a month.

Can someone put some light here regarding best pracices done outside.

Thanks
