10 tapes costs approx 60.
I can divide each tape into OS / FS whatever.
e.g.: Even though I only use windows for testing the odd day, it is
completely updated (apps and all) and there are zero errors in the event
viewer, so I backed her up to a DDS2 last night happy in the knowledge
that when eventually the HDD goes tits up, I can restore from backup
(system state and all).
If I go the HDD backup route, I will have to open the case. And I hate
touching hardware, it really annoys me.
Once each system will be backed up, I can wrap them up in bubbles and
celotape and stick em in the attic for all eternity.
I shall then do daily incremental backups of all my data on the server,
aswell as workstations.
I have not yet decided on a backup solution though. I would like something
that supports remote agent backup of sorts.
I have a copy of tapeware (licenced) and I may try it out.
Any other suggestions?

All SCSI which smartd does not support, at least on the server.
