You ask if a 21 save is enough? The answer is - probably NOT. How often do you 
do a 21 save? Every day, once a week, once a month, once ETC. What about Save 
any changed objects SINCE the LAST 21 save. Saving the security, etc. All I'm 
saying is , a backup policy needs to be investigated. Each sites policy will be 
pertinent for that site. 
Our policy is a FULL sytem save every weekend, and month-end. The month-end 
system save tapes are duplicated,  a copy sent off-site for disaster recovery 
purposes. Every night we back up the production data library prior to starting 
the day-end cycle. Once the day-end cycle is finished, we SAVE CHANGED OBJECTS, 
as well as saving the security data.

These are useful sites for general knowledge of the subject....but I think
most of us are interested in AS/400 shops. Is a '21' save enough? If not,
why not? 

Maybe there is some proud department head out that that would share his with
us via direct email????

Another useful URL when crafting / reviewing a backup policy might be

Disaster Recovery Policy & Procedures

What all needs to be protected & does your policy in fact protect all that?
