In between system saves

Here's a program that will give you a little piece of mind in between your system saves.

If you're like our company, your user information and DLO data change constantly. We get a full-system save at least once a month. In the days in between, we scheduled a little CL that runs SAVSECDTA and SAVDLO and appends it on to a backup of all "production" libraries (for us) that's run on our Ultrium2 drive. So, the only thing we are not getting backed up every night is the system files. We don't see this as a problem because if we made changes in between FSS, we would get a fresh one anyway. Using our Ultrium2, this backup only takes seven minutes -- a small price to pay for piece of mind.
