Re: Backup Strategy - Informal Survey

I do nightly exports of my large databases with ROWS=N. This way I can restore users, grants, indexes, table definitions, etc.

I'd like to pose a question to you all and get your response. If you are running a database that is larger than 250GB, what place in your backup strategy does a logical export have? Do you do logical exports at all, and if so with what frequency? Do you feel that logical exports are an important part of your backup/recovery strategy?
