I am sorry if this answer is already online but I have done quite a bit
of research on this topic already and haven't found a really clear
answer. In some cases it's recommended to do nightly complete dumps
while others say that an incremental backup is fine. To me, having
quick reliable DB restores is the most important function of our backup
(heavy development). Some of you are zipping the archives also which I
would like to learn more about. It would be nice if someone would share
their batch and python files. I know there is a script called
hot-backup.py but I have been warned that if I run it while someone is
committing changes, it could damage our db. Its also more/less
important depending on the type of DB one has. Which one do I have?


Must have: nightly backups of the complete db to a shared folder on the

Nice to have: the backups are zipped before they are sent over the
network, and instructions for disaster recovery situations


Our environment: Tortoise SVN, Python 2.4, Windows 2003 server


Thanks in advance!
