Backup Options

By djtnsd ·
Is CDRW a good option for backing data from a NT server? Normally, there is about 200 meg of Data. How would it compare to a ZIP or JAZZ drive.
Tape drives are too expensive and problematic.
The OS does not have to be backed since there is a BDC on the network.

It aint a bad option at all .... of course unless u have a habit of scratching cd's!!! Also depends if the backup is automated or manual. If manual then( and for 200 MB only ) I wud personally go for ZIP/JAZZ only coz of cd's getting scratches. It its automated then tape drives rule man!!
About not backing the OS ... dangerous game that. Wot I do is to have C with only OS and Program Files and another disk with Data. So if OS goes potty .... jus re-install OS on C: and data is never ever touched. Safest option.
Gud luck.

I think CDR/W are a good idea if you have
to keep those backup for a long period of
time.

But having to update a backup every night,
I would prefer a tape/zip/jazz.. moreover
you can make incremential backup wich
are faster (not sureabout incremential
cdrw backup)
