Thanks eveyone for ther input...i have a little disk space to burn,
so i have decided to use dump/restore to write a weekley archive to
one tape dump level 3 then dump to another tape once a month dump level 0
the do a dailey level 3 dump to a hardrive and maybe have a monthly level 0
dump to hardrive too. this combined with the raid1 array should keep
me safe i hope.
