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.

+1 for the answer, and also an upvote to Graeme's comment - even if it's something that should be taken for granted it should also still be highlighted.

@pehrs - have you ever had a single disk fail in a server? Thought not.

comment Workstation file synchronization to deploy though a group policy
Exactly what I was gonna suggest. You can configure your redirection policy to move anything on the PC back to the server first time too. I think offline files might be OK if you're happy to live within it's limitations (I've seen MS guys use it before and they seemed OK with it). I wouldn't advise using it unless you know that you have to though.

comment Creating an email account for a user when the name already exists
It's just a naming convention, so as long as it adheres to the rules of SMTP addresses it's not the kind of thing that there would be a best practice for. RFC2821 is the bible for SMTP and doesn't specify any standard.

It's a pity that you can't do 4 x 15k disks in RAID 10 because performance is really sweet.

comment What is the fastest and safest RAID combination for SATA drives?
RAID 10 is actually no more inefficient in terms of available storage than RAID 1, although you do need 4 disks minimum for it.
