If you are going to be backing up that much data on a daily basis
and do not want to have to worry about CD-R/W swapping then a
tape drive would be the way to go. Know that REx only supports
ATAPI tape drives.

Hi,

I recently downloaded the Retrospect Express Trial, I'm attempting
to work
Retrospect Express into our backup strategy.  Before we purchase
the full
version of this software, I'd like to get this problem straightened
out.  We
currently have approx. 7.1 GB of information that our company
has stored on
our server.  Most of this data is latent, and changed about once
a month,
but there is about 2 GB of it that is accessed daily and about
1/4 of that 2
GB is changed daily.  Our server currently has a CD-RW drive
that we use
once a week to backup our active information, and we backup the
rest about
once a month.

Using Dantz's product, we would like to increase the frequency
of our
backups of our active information to a daily backup.  This seems
possible
with the incremental backup function of the product, but there
simply isn't
enough room on one CD for our backups.  What do we need to do
to make daily
backups a reality?  Do we need to bite the bullet and buy a tape
drive, or
can we make a CD backup work?

Thanks in advance.
