We use a 13-tape rotation. We swap tapes during the day on Monday, full
(recycle) backup on Monday night, normal backups Tue-Sat nights. In
addition, we have an FTP server offsite with one FTP backup set on it. Every
two weeks we do a recycle backup to it over the weekend (takes anywhere from
24-36 hours, typically) with normal backups every evening.
