Superstore Autoloader 1/8

Hello All,

We recently purchased a Superstore Autoloader 1/8 to backup a new Windows 2003 server. The role of the server is for software development and houses several different databases. We will be doing nightly backups along with a weekly and monthly backup.

My question is do we need to purchase backup software or is ntbackup a feasible solution?

If you could please tell me the drawbacks from using ntbackup and also suggest alternate software packages I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your feedback.

Comercial SW offers you more capabilities. I am using this HW with ARCserve, and it works fine.

hi,
I can say for long run you have to go
for a commercial backup software only.
you can try HP's Dataprotector-5.
You may face intermitent problems

OR you can try this there are "n" numbers of commercial as well as free backup softwares.

Hi,
Please let me correct my above post:

for a commercial backup software only.
You may face intermitent problems
if you use windows internal backup software.

You can try HP's Dataprotector-5.
