     about 30 production servers which are backed up each night.  The daily 
     backup is an incremental backup, only the changed files are saved, 
     similar to what you do.  Each week a full backup is made, every file 
     on the server is copied.  The full backups are kept on site with a

     These full backups are kept for 18 months and then recycled.

other's opinions, strategies, etc. on backing up computer files.
     I would like to hear of a more systematic approach to scheduling 
     backups and using tapes from some of you experienced backuppers (new
