Speaking as an IT Consultant: Don't do it - it'll never work.

Can't remember how many times I have laughed at that one . . .

There is a well-known Law about backups. I don't know who discovered it, but System Admins have been aware of it since the invention of the byte, it still holds true:-

Any backup on any media is either complete or readable - but not both.

Mad fencer has already caused one forum to close down, everyone saw the post where she admitted it. And it was on new software.

You may just me making the forum more vulnerable to the forces of darkness like mad fencer. LOLAL
