Strategies for backing up SQL over VPN

Recommended Posts

How does Retrospect 7.5 handle backing up SQL databases over a VPN link?


Does it just compare database to last normal backup & copy down just the data that has changed, or does it copy the whole DB down?


We have a copy of RS7.5 for SBS and am wondering if it is worth getting the Server Client Licence Add on and using the SQL licence on the remote machine.


Currently we are tossing up using rsync or robocopy to get the backed up databases off that server and on to our local SBS machine & using RS to back up from there.
