We have around 25 Servers and around 300Gb of data to be backed up daily. Now, my question to you is: is there a way to just pick the incremental backup? That is, back up only the new / modified documents from the db. Normally, we have a db with size around 2Gb and there has been only a small amount of data added/deleted from the db..and we need to go daily for a full db backup of 2Gb. Can you suggest some way to go for an incremental backup?
There would have to be a product that could support this, and I do not know of one. Most products simply look to the file, in this case, xyz.nsf, and it sees that it has been modified. It then takes a backup of the modified file. Document backups would be a daunting task. How would the program put the correct documents back into the database? I can't see how this could happen, but then again, I don't write backup software code for a living.
