Job Archiving questions, rant

Just wondering what others are using for job archiving?
We've been using Retrospect and DAT tapes for years and it is generally
very good. We move jobs that are ready to be archived to a common
"Archive" folder.  It takes a minimal of operator time, perhaps an
hour every week or two to organize 10-20 Gigs for archiving. Then
several hours of actual writing to tape. Retrospect catalogues each
file as it writes it, so if the backup gets interupted in order to pull
back another job, it can easily be restarted and it knows where it left
off. Occasionally the drive needs to be replaced, maybe every 2 years
or so. Its pretty fool proof which is a big deal to me.

We recently received a Powerfile DVD jukebox with  DVD-RAM media
which we were instructed to use. (No-they don't ask us what we want
to use). I have several concerns about this setup and wonder what you
think about this and how does it compare to your setup?

Some problems I see with this are:
1. The media is not permanent. Files can be moved, edited on the
DVD-RAM and deleted, its treated basically like a slow hard drive.
2. The Media Finder X software that was supplied (unregistered
shareware) allows you to catalogue the disks, but it seems that after
each writing session you have to recatalogue the entire DVD collection,
takes forever.
3. If you search the catalogue and then drag the results to your
desktop, it MOVES the files (they are no longer on the DVD)!!! How's
that for a permanent archive!
4. Mac OSX is terrible at updating and showing actual size of folders
and disk space that is available so it is very cumbersome to copy files
to the DVD. You have to determine how big each job folder is, then find
one of the DVDs with enough space and copy it. If a single job is too
big for a DVD, you need to split it up into smaller folders before
archiving.
5. I suspect it will take 2-3 days to copy all of the files to disks,
rather than the hour or so that it takes now to organize the files then
let retrospect write unattended.
6. They apparently spent 9000 bucks on this stupid system!

Question about Filemaker's "time cards" starter database
Hello all, I have two related questions for y'all: 1) So Filemaker includes a starter kit called "time cards" that allows you to create time cards for employees. But the way it's implemented (i.e. where all the data is in one table) seems to create a situation where multiple time cards for the same employee aren't really associated with each other, but are instead reported separately in the report layouts. This would seem to make it more difficult to, say, report how many hours the employee has worked to date in total, not just for a particular time sheet. Does anyon...

Question about move large amount of data from database to database
guys, I have a project need to move more than 100,000 records from one database table to another database table every week. Currently, users input date range from web UI, my store procedure will take those date ranges to INSERT records to a table in another database, then delete the records, but it will take really long time to finish this action (up to 1 or 2 hours). My question is if there is some other way I should do to speed up the action, I am thinking about use bcp to copy those records to datafile and then use bcp to insert it into SQL Server table. Is this the right way to do it or ...

Replication/archiving of database content to archive db instance?
Dear subscribers I=92m looking for a solution to archive the content of some tables in a product that uses Sybase as the database engine. The problem is that some of the table contain records in such large numbers that it affects the performance of the application thus we like to move content older than e.g. a year to an archive instance of the database on a regular basis. This archive instance will basically have the same table setup as the original version but will contain the old data. We have looked at Sybase=92s Replication Server but I like to see if there are any other options available. My biggest worry is fault tolerance i.e. if anything goes wrong we mustn=92t loose any data, i.e. that a row is deleted from the main database without being written properly to the archive database. If Sybase supports cross-database transactions maybe this task can be solved with a simple scheduled script? Any suggestions are most welcome.

Database question, Vb6 SP5, DAO, Access database

I do not know all the terms, so I hope I can explain my question. I wrote a program in VB6 SP5 using DAO. It works with no known problems (yet), I had to add/modify the database and program to include an additional variable.

Archiving the current database and creating a new empty database
I want to have a command button which enables the user to make a copy of the current database, but without any records in it. Of course all the forms and reports will be intact. I want the old database to be given a different name so that it will be obvious that it is an archive copy and so that the new empty database will continue with the original name. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. ...

a database, is a database, is a err database
How many times can we see the same request from someone who wants to access data from a 'pick' database through what has come to be 'standard' practices (odbc, oledb) and still get the same old sloppy ' buy this proprietary utility (and above all, my services)' answer. I think most of these pick flavors should have some sort of layer (by now!) to handle this; If someone needs to do this, the service is really 'education' i.e to show them how. Lets cut the shit now and stop with this tired and silly BS and sad marketing schlock.

Database question
Hi All, Some years ago I wrote a Database app using Paradox Tables for a small company. The system has been working well within their office to date, but now they want more. They want the ability to access the database via the internet and also give their clients access to it as well. My initial thoughts were a web based system that could access the Paradox database. Is this possible? Any direction to information would be greatly appreciated. The app was originally written with Delphi 4 C/S, and I now have BDS 2006 Architect. Thanks and Kind Regards, Robbie...
