Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Can anyone advise how best to run the following strategy, or even if it is possible/sensible strategy?

I am looking to backup an SBS server using BE2012 where the data is backed up on a weekly full backup, with subsequent daily incrementals till the end of the week, a fresh full backup will then be taken the next weekend, and the cycle repeats for 4 weeks, thus 4 full backups with incrementals.

This months worth of backups will then be moved off to an offsite store via USB drive for safe keeping.

Is this viable, sensible, or am i just a bit crazy?

All ideas are welcome.
