Formerly known as "Jimmy Shelter".

Then one appeared among us, in our own form visible, but greater and more beautiful; and he said that he had come out of pity.

I'm like the Clint Eastwood of backups. I drift into town, say "ahm-a gonna clean up yer backups", shoot the place up a bit, get rid of the bad guys, then drift back out again.

Been there, done that, still doing it.

comment How does a team of Systems Administrators share passwords securely?
Seconded on the "hundreds is a very troubling number" thing. I think you maybe need to back up and reconsider how you're managing the whole security thing in the first place rather than attempt to put sticking plaster on what you've currently got.

comment Windows data backups with alternating removable drives?
It's a long time since I've used ntbackup, but if memory serves you can set a job to append. Your scenario would be creating two identical jobs but going to different destinations and running on alternate days, configured to append if possible.
