Paul, I think Leif's suggestion is a good one - preserves directory structure and takes up less space. However, I want to caution you about a bad habit that can come of this set up. (Not to say that this will happen to your client, but I have seen it happen to others.) There is sometimes an impulse to stop doing tape backups since you have this "hot site" backup. And while the hot site backup may be great for recovering from disk crashes; earthquakes, tornados, fires, and floods don't know not to destroy both systems... Chuck <snip> I've got a client (a construction company) who wants to use an old 400 for a sort of "hot site" backup for his production 820. <snip>
