The biggest problem for many users is the usage of back ups. Few if any even use it. Even less really understand the proper use and procedures to make backups effective. Tape back ups are the biggest headache, as most users only have one tape. The most common failure is after the new tape has been written but fails to verify..With only one tape, the user has now overwritten their most recent valid backup tape with unverifiable data. I have attempted to get most users to switch to DVD and this has actually been easier for most. There is still a large number who continue to tempt fate by not backing up at all.
