To me, this is a theme, not a one off. At least in my own experience.

But that's no bad thing.

- Backups, why?, rotation, off-site, sets.
- Backups, internal organization, central storage (for central 
backup), migrating to that orientation - nfs, samba, ...
- Backups, actual process / software / steps. Cron. CHECKING THE LOGS!
   - this would be multiple. Amanda one night, dar another, tar, 
clonezilla, rsync
- Backups - restore (testing)
   - perhaps this is two bits: prep. the replacement hardware with a 
minimal install, to be able to load the backup back on. pxe / net boot?
- Backups - imaging
- Backups - archiving
- Backups - archival storage / format. IIRC a comment from Richard, 
optical storage doesn't last nearly as long as we expect. And a decade 
later when it doesn't work ...
