I have a backup store of 350GB now and my Kerio backup takes over 24 hours to a firewire 800 hard disk. I am using a mac pro.

I wonder if there is a better solution as I am thinking if I had to recover something which I have never had to do would take the same or longer.

Something like time machine where it is always backing up what has changed would be ideal. I have a gigabit fibre link to another site for offsite backing up.

What are other people doing with that size store?

Do not use Time Machine with Kerio store directly, it'll constantly corrupt your folder index. My Kerio server is an Xserve, and it has multiple backups

1. 3 internal drives running on RAID 5, two partitions, one for boot system, the other for data.
2. The boot partition is cloned once a week using CCC to a image file on the data partition.
3. The data partition is cloned once a day at midnight to another partition on the external drive.
4. Kerio still does its backups.
5. Time Machine runs once a day to backup Kerio backup zip files and the cloned boot partition image file.
6. Crash Plan Pro runs once a day to backup Kerio backup zip files and the cloned boot partition to an offsite location.

This way, if for whatever your server fails, you can clone the boot image to another server, plug in the external hard drive, redirect Kerio's store folder, and be back up and running in under 30 minutes. Yes, you would have up to 1 day of data loss, but having the server back up and running gives you time to recover the one day worth of data.
