I'm looking for suggestions and ideas of what others are using to backup user mail archives?
By default, as we all know, a user's mail file gets archiving locally to an end user's computer.
And unless they take responsibility and back it up to an external device or something, if their hard drive dies then so does their archive.
Our CTO has "lost" his archive which he did previously have on his system. He's all up in arms and wants a us to come up with a solution to "properly backup & store users' archive files".
In the past he has not wanted to do server archiving because that takes up so much disk space and he's felt it defeats the purpose of regaining space on the server.
We currently have replicas of several exec's archives on the server, but not his. (It never came up, plus he's got the ability to create replicas on the server.)
