Off-site backups


Recommended Posts

I was wondering what the best configuration is for off-site backups that are rotated weekly.


Right now, we have two external HDDs that are Backup Set A and Backup Set B and the schedule backs up to A on week 1 and B on week 2 and so on and so forth...


Problem is, if Jimmy in Sydney forgets to switch the drives over on Monday, the system grinds to a halt until the drive gets switched. If Jimmy skips a week, then there won't be any backups until I go into Retrospect to removed the queued backups from the week before!


Should I make both drives part of the same backup set? How will they cope with being off-site for a week if I do?


Thanks for any help...
