Hi we are proposing a weekly backup using flashcopy and a max 7 day rollfoward for recovery purposes (around 150 journal extracts) to effect a disaster recovery if need be.

Would anyone have any similar setups or observations regarding this scenario (positives, pitfalls) for your organisation.

I need to sell this idea internally and am looking for other organisaitons and what they do.

We presently backup on the daily basis using hotbackup and we are trying to move to a less frequent procedure.

We know the process works in the time frames we need, its just that there is a lack of confidence in abandoning the daily process which has been in place for many many years.
