First, sorry for the waste of bandwidth - please reply privately as this
doesn't really belong here..
I have been using a Sony DAT (DDS-2) drive for daily backups in a small
NetBSD network. The drive has always had its bugs, needing power-cycling
every now and then, but now it seems to be dying for good.
I'd like to hear from other NetBSD users about good and reliable backup
systems. Should I get another DAT drive or some 1/4" inch Tandberg that
a dealer recommended to me (and no-one else has ever heard about) or
just get a large disk and create tarballs on it every night? The data
that needs backing up is valuable (to me, at least ;-)
Thanks for any thoughts,
