I'm looking at implementing a backup plan for our new Sharepoint 2010 server. From what I understand, there's several new powershell commands available in 2010: backup-spfarm, restore-spfarm, backup-spsite, restore-spsite.
Now for a daily job, backup-spfarm seems reasonable to use. However I'm concerned that running this alone may not be granular enough for restores. What happens if a single site collection needs restoring (perhaps someone deleted something they shouldn't have)?
I want to be able to restore a single Site collection without affecting all the other site collections if need be.
What's best practice here? Should I run backup-spfarm, and then backup-spsite on all my site collections as well? Or does backup-spfarm supersede backup-spsite?
