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 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.

No misconfiguration really, it's not actually an error on your setup, and is only relevant if you're using WINS/NetBIOS on your network.

+1 to both Tom and Robert here. The audit trail is very important, especially if the person is leaving against their will and does something naughty before they go.
