I need some suggestions on a backup procedure. Here's what I am backing up to a 3.5 TB fileserver (RAID 5).
200 GB of application and document files from an application server.
About 200 GB each on four medical imaging workstations.
100 GB of SQL database files from a SQL Server
100 GB of backed up files from several other servers
I would then like to backup the data on the 3.5 TB fileserver to a 4 TB NAS (RAID 5).
Running over a network with a 10/100 switch and a gigabit switch (for the servers).
Ideally the NAS would be in a remote location connected via two bonded T1s.
I have been using Handy Backup to just copy the files, but it stalls in the middle and takes much too long.
Any suggestions on backing up this amount of data in a daily scheduled task that wouldn't have to be monitored every single day?
