Debbie:

Make sure you print out all spool files that you want to save. If you
backup using SAVE(21) your spool files will disappear. Some companies save
those files for re-printing and get really upset when they disappear on the
restore.

Frankly, we do a go SAVE(21) followed by SAVE(9). The SAVE(9) is used for
restore and it preserves all of the user profile information, and job queue
entries. You also don't have to worry about damaged objects that would kill
a SAVE(21). The only problem with SAVE(9) that we have found relates to a
reset performed with DST and the resource names associated with the
individual line descriptions.

However--SAVE(9) is an "all or nothing" restore. Therefore, we use SAVE(21)
in case we have a problem on the SAVE(9).
