I recently needed to install an IIS based web app for a client and wanted to be sure that everything was backed up. I found a really simple and fast way to do just that by following the steps outlined over on this blog post.
Just thought that I would drop this link for anyone that may need assistance with recovery. This is basically a page full of links on how to recover from various disaster/app failures, such as Exchange, SQL, etc.
Some time ago, I was looking for a simple way to backup my Linux desktop machines. I use to take the time and create my own rsync scripts etc, and get versioned snapshots. A few months back I found BackInTime. This tool makes backing up with snapshots easy. Check it out here: http://backintime.le-web.org/
