Default edubuntu-users Digest, Vol 60, Issue 5

I don't know anything about tapes.

But know I consider that external USB drive with 1TB capacity are so cheap, that I decided to use them for the same purpose, together with clonezilla.

We are making an image of the server every week.

We had to restore one time ; it worked very well.

For additionnal safety maybe you could use two such disks alternatively.

Sincerely.

Gilles

Hi,

I would use some scheduled copying of users files to two alternating
disks and a third (+fourth) taking a complete image of the server as
Gilles describe.

This way you can either restore single files and/or the whole server
when things go wrong.

I am using this method today, running daily file-backups to a
fileserver and manually making images once a week as backup for a
non-critical webserver I administrate.

Regards,

Patrik TGIF!
