I never thought of such an idea

I would also like to here about such websites

Two of my favorites are:

http://www.infostor.com/index/backup-and_recovery.html

and

www.acronis.com

These 2 are very handy in keeping up with what is going on out there.

I'd like to present my Russian blog on backup and recovery and NetBackup in particular - http://bancal.livejournal.com/

I hope it would be handy for Russian-speaking guys.

I am not able to send email to your above BLOG link Kate Lewis and send an email

Do you have a favorite website that you visit for all your Backup and Recovery news?

 

Frankly I only see the Veritas Netbackup Server news as far as the Backup and Recovery news are concern and the best place for this is ( https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/ )  ... But nowadays I also started using Symantec Enablement Toolkit 3 to see the news of symantec under Home => Latest News....

(  I some times got help from these sites too )

I use http://www.backupcentral.com/ for keeping up to date on the latest backup information

 

Also use EMC's website http://www.emc.com/solutions/business-need/backup-recovery-archiving/backup-recovery.htm for Avamar backup which is our primary backup for our Environment

@zahid, I checked the "mailto" links and they seem to work just fine.But here is the email address in case you still have trouble with those links..kate_lewis@symantec.com.

Dear Zahid,

What is causing an issue for you to send an email? A mailto: link might require an active desktop email client which is configured to send an email. Else you can simply use the email address (kate_lewis@symantec.com) and use your preferred email client to send the note the the author.

If you are having issues like your email bouncing or being rejected for variety of reasons, you should mention it briefly so that connect team can you help you out of the mess.

This site is the first one where I've ever found anything useful about Backup Exec.  Before that I tried experts exchange but that was a waste of time.  

Haha! Good one! I actually use the "googles" as well and often add site:symantec.com to find our KB articles specifically or mine the forums.

BURAguy.com is my favorite website Smiley Wink  but the writer needs to write more often Smiley Tongue
