Of course i have a DR set of tapes which are taken off site daily. In 
the event of a DR i request them from offsite storage and have an SLA 
with them. Tapes are held off site for a week and then returned as 
scratch. This has now been tested twice and the method is working well 
for the cost of producing it.

Cheers
