How does SharePoint Backup and Restore work
I have had a few questions about this recently, SharePoint backup is a little out of my normal territory.

I hope the above links are useful for those of you in the server support side who have to back up SharePoint

I need to find some good information on planning for SharePoint 2007 and 2010 users so will be going through this site in detail!
Found these via references in LinkedIn Group discussions:
The Microsoft site advises that “The Productivity Hub is a Microsoft SharePoint Server site collection that offers training materials for end-users.”
I am downloading them both now – looks like a bit of a project, but both sets come with instructions.
I have just been catching up on my pod cast listening while cleaning up my office (a task worthy of Time Team and also really requiring three days).

InfoPath and Designer
