  1. Thank you for your insightful response. Our backup needs are far more modest than what you deal with at a university. We have only a few gigs to backup and a limited budget for tapes. If I understand your definitions: Latency should be within 24 hours. TTL, a week. My primary concern in using an incremental strategy is having to step through multiple tapes should a full restore be needed. Had a bad experience once on a Unix box when we encountered media errors on an incremental archive while restoring after a major upgrade. Wasn’t using Retrospect at that time…
  2. I want to be able to do full backups everynight. No differential or incremental backups. Exactly how should I configure the jobs? (I'm using the eval version and have no documentation) Thanks
  3. Do I need to leave the server console logged in with retrospect running in order for the secheduled scripts to run?? I would think a server backup program should be able to run as a service.
