Re: how to back up a small PC network?



fixed

Ok, so basically you have a separate server to blow things on.

Ok, I took it a step simpler and have a spare pair of HDDs for the RAID
mirror.  I pull out the production ones and put in the blanks and give it a
try.

Now, my problem though, is large data arrays.  I have a server that has a
200GB RAID array on it.  Granted I could set up a cheapo box with a 200 GB
IDE drive to simulate.  Think that is a good idea?
