What to back up??

By jredding ·
I am responsible for the backup of our 30+ NT/2000 servers. My data has grown quite drastically over the past year and my backup window is shrinking. I know I am backing up alot of unnecessary files. My question is, what are the necessary files?

make a full backup, then do incremental backups. The incremental backups should take only changed files. Do a new full backup monthly and recycle the incremental backups. Veritas should have a variety of backup stratagies on their web site.
