Do you recall what version you were using? We've not had any issue like that in the past 3 years. I'll have to check but I think we pointed bakbone to sql for its db, but I,ll check that.

We installed and ran Backbone Netvault when I worked at the insurance company a few years back. We discovered that the backup system relies on a in-house written database for storing the backup jobs, cataloging tapes, configuring the library, etc. The unfortunate part of this is that the database is some what fragile and easily corrupted. If the NetVault service is not stopped from within the NetVault software before a server reboot, it will corrupt the database. Even stopping the service from the services mmc will corrupt the database. I found this to be a huge issue and on multiple occasions had to rebuild from scratch. And because we were utilizing disk to disk (virtual tapes) for backups, rebuilding from scratch took a couple of hours and would lose all of our historical information on what tape was offsite, due for re-use, etc causing us to have to rescan all of the tapes that were in rotation. After a year of struggling with it, we abandon the product and went back to BackupExec.

I’m looking for any information I can get on any of these products. If you know something, good or bad, would you share? Thanks!
Do You Know Anything About... <http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Tonydye/~3/284609585/do-you-know-any.html>
We're giving some serious consideration to some data management products. I'm looking for any comments, good or bad, about any of them. I'm wary of stepping into anything that no other church/ministry has used before, and at the same time, I realize this is some new territory. Can you help me out?
* BakBone NetVault <http://www.bakbone.com/product.aspx?id=1304> . Alternative: why not stay with BackupExec?
* C2C Archive One <http://www.c2c.com/site/products/archiveone/default.asp> . Alternative: The Barracuda Message Archiver
* Moonwalk <http://www.moonwalkinc.com/> . Alternatives: Arkivio, CaminoSoft, Enigma Data , SevenTen, probably others, all of whom I know even less about
* Data Domain <http://www.datadomain.com/> . Alternatives: ExaGrid, SanMelody, and probably plenty of others
If you have any horror stories, I'd sure rather hear them now.
