I know there are a lot of admins available here that deal with that MS
server thing. I have an exchange server, SQL server, and files I am
looking for backup solutions for. I signed up for Rackspace's trial,
but their solution for SQL backup doesn't impress me. I heard of one
some time ago that will only transfer the difference between what was
just done since the last backup (similar to incremental) but once it
reaches the online storage site, it applied the differences and would
have a complete database backup.  It would do the same for files
(which is less significant, most of the files are small, but the
database backup is approaching 330M and contains the entire company
status including accounting) Does anyone have any suggestions what to
use? Exchange currently consists of about 40 mailboxes to back up and
most people can't seem to keep control of what is in their mailbox.

I was looking for more of a live backup solution, and I saw where you
can specify how many minutes between backups, but I don't think #1
would be done before #2 starts, thanks to our great internet speed at
this office.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Richard
