    I have an older seagate travan 4 tape backup that came with backup exec 2.0. I have small business server 2003 and am only going to backup some shared documents as the tape is only 4-8 gig capacity.

    Should I get the latest version of backup exec or is the built in back up utilty reliable? Since the new version of Backup exec is several hundred bucks I was wondering about the pros & cons besides price?

    Travan tapes are not the most reliable media out there, I would try it with the built-in first and make sure it actually works. Make sure it backs up and then make sure you can actually restore from the tape. According to all I have read the built-in works fine. I have read about issues with back-up exec and some other programs running on SBS 2003.
