I have a question that would seem to be easy to answer, but for some reason it has been proving to be more challenging that I had thought.

I have several types of data backups, over 60GB of data for my web clients, and I need to port stuff over to a brand new replacement external HD. One of the things that my services boast of is redundant backups.

I don't use a RAID config, and in a catastrophic hardware failure, it is possible for the most reliable RAID configs to fail.

Currently I have multiple data hard drives in my server. I also have an internal backup hard drive and an external back up hard drive.

Twice per week I backup to a portable hard drive that is stored "off site". The very nature of the type of hosting I provide is more emotionally envolving than typical business hosting, so I take backups exceedingly serious.

How can I best copy about 60 to 70GB of data to a portable HD twice per week?

This will be coming off of one of the other back up hard drives, as such it is not important to be worried about using too much the system or LAN resources.

Any thoughts on which programs you like for very LARGE operations?

Thanks.

I've never guaged its performance, but I use a backup script that you could easily modify.

Backup.cmd
Code:
if exist %2\ (Echo %2) else (goto PathNotDefined)

set hour=%time:~0,2%
if "%hour:~0,1%"==" " set hour=0%time:~1,1%
set folder=%date:~10,4%-%date:~4,2%-%date:~7,2%(Time_%hour%_%time:~3,2%_%time:~6,2%)
mkdir %2\%folder%\
@Echo "Backup Started:" >>"%2\%folder%\BackupLog.txt"

date/t>>%2\%folder%\BackupLog.txt
