You should be doing practice DR's. Grab a PC and do them. This gives you the
chance to see how long a restore would take, how to do one, and to make sure
the data on the tapes is good.

Subject: Backup Time, rule of thumb


Hi

Does anyone have a rule of thumb for backup time ?  Could we say that if the
backup is more than 5 hours, it could make things more difficult for the
restore (downtime).

Example you restore during 7 hours to see that something went wrong. You
lost 7 hours.

I never had to do a disaster recovery yet, most of the time, does it take
the same time approx as the backup time to restore?
