     Heh heh-try walking one of MY end users through dealing with tapes 
and such... It gives me a raging headache just thinking about it... ;-) 

     Since they're about 400 miles away, having full remote access 
through VPN is *much* nicer(got TB2 on 'em as well, which rocks). As I 
said, by backing up *only* documents, we keep the bandwidth within an 
acceptable level for nighttime use. As for the OS, if the unit completely 
dies we'll just fedex a clean one to 'em-after restoring their files from 
the local backup set... As a result, I too never do a full backup over 
the DSL-which I concede would be akin to madness...
