That's not a bad system per se -- would you care to elaborate what
about that scheme is unsatisfactory? What sort of characteristics are
you looking for in your backup scheme: for instance how long do you
want to retain backups for? How much stuff do you want to backup?
What about keeping off-site copies? Is it more important to be able to
recover a system quickly or is it more important to cram as many
copies of the data as possible onto the available media?
