    Cost effective backup strategy????

    Using Dantz Retrospect Pro version 6 or later:

    1. Create a bootable CD-ROM using CD-R or CD-RW.
    2. Use CD-RW, CD-R, and writable DVD for incremental backups.
    3. Use writable DVD for full backups.

    Dantz has stated that this solution should work.

    When booting from a Dantz disaster recovery CD, a temporary OS is created, which should allow recovery from DVD.

    Anybody have experience with such a strategy?

    Hi Howard:
    Not with Dantz or DVD, but a similar experience. A couple of years ago, I had to recover everything as I was unable to boot to Windows. So I used my Emergency Disaster Recovery Disk from Backup Exec. It then allowed me to to use any full backup set that I wanted. Once that was installed, I was able to use Incremental disks to restore up to the last point before my "disaster".

    I keep mine Exact Copied to a Different Hard Drive and it has saved my tail a few times. Just switched over to the other Hard Drive, Reformated and Partitioned and Copied again. Then there were two exact copies again ready to go. Very little down time that way.
