    Not sure what the real question is, but the stuff buncdled with Microsoft is a stop gap program at best. I manage a small 10 server farm and back everything up nightly on 4 DLT tapes. 3 Servers per tape and my Biggest on the last tape. I use Backup Exec from Veritas and it works so well that I was able to give the tape changing duty to someone else. When there's a problem it notifys me!

    Have fun and good luck!
