Hi, Just started to use the ver 8.0, noted the suggestion that incremental is a good appraoch. On that subject I am also using Veritas 9.1 with the Intelligent Disaster Recovery option, just in case. Does TI reset the archive bit, or rely on file modification times to determine what to add to an incremental image. Is there any reason not to use another backup solution, in case when I try to restore a dead server to another same brand box with same hardware config the image does not restore or is deemed corrupt, despite being validated by TI itself. Also, I guess if you were doing a once weekly TI of all drives, you could restore and then update from a later tape. I use an external USB 2.0 hard drive to store images, which are always validated. Thanks.
