How to setup a USB harddrive Backup
Created: 23 Sep 2007 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 6 comments
My backup USB tape drive is failing dismally and whilst I wait for either Sony or Symantec to sort it out I need to backup the Company data from a Win2003 SBS.
I've got a large USB disk drive and want to setup a rolling Mon-Fri backup.
The Overwirte and Append options always seem to throw a spanner in the works so I'm looking for a simple way of doing this.
Whats also confusing me is the "maximum number of backup sets per backup-to-disk file" option.
Whats it mean and whats the best setting to use in this scenario. (I've read the glossary at the back of the admin manual but could do with some guidance!).
