Re: DSLR Restore Progress

I think they had database backups, problem is they were on the same storage array which was the biggest blunder I think.

I figured as much... my PCs get backed up to my NAS, and my Data is stored on separate drives than the OS on each individual PC...

Which solves two issues; if the OS fails, then I can re-install the OS while keeping the data, and if the whole thing were to melt down then I'd have the Data on my NAS.

It's the best low-maintenance homebrew solution I can think of.

Yes, and if true, also an expensive one, on many levels.

I'm curious however, just how long that a FULL backup of a site and database of DSLR's pre-apocalypsoh size would take to do ?

And as such, how frequently it would be practical to perform one with the site up and running 24-7 ?
