We will begin doing full saves and restores to our S20 Y2K machine
next week as we start moving the system date for testing.  I was under
the impression that using SAVSTG would be faster than doing the
regular full system backup and restore.  I don't care about
rescattering, the system is scattered fine after loading all of our
data out starting clean.  I just want to use the method that will be
the easiest, fastest, and most reliable for moving the system date
back after testing.  Given that both work, which would most people
here recommend?  Losing the spool files is not an issue, should we go
with the full system save and restore method.
