My server has a raid built in which helps for piece of mind....but I run a cron once a week to back up the entire server on to a tape. I have 4 tapes and they are rotated so that I have my server backed up weekly...and have the past month's weekly files available. They are tar zipped in the process.

I've actually used my backup. I can't remember why...but I lost a hunk of data. It took a while to retrieve the data and lost files but it worked.

ALthough I would prefer to back up my server daily (), I figure if something happens, my members would have to understand that we are doing the best we can to keep all data/files/posts but this isn't possible 100% of the time.
