I'm sort of on the periphery of this issue, but I'd like to help the admins
at a local high school devise a reliable backup strategy for backing up a
FirstClass server that can't be taken off line during the workday (and
shouldn't be taken offline at other times either...). As I understand it,
there is a new "mirror" feature in FirstClass that allows the mirror to be
copied reliably. I believe SoftArc uses Finder IDs (rather than paths) to
locate important data & config files, so a Finder copy can't be used to do
a backup.

Anyway, the objective here is to minimize the damage done by a crash or
power outage to no more than a day (or less). It would be nice to have an
automated procedure that takes a snapshot of the entire FC system
periodically during the day...possibly to another partition.

Are there any FirstClass admins or knowledgeable out there that have
addressed this need with Retrospect??
