We had our fall D/R hotsite test last week and all went well -- except
for the recovery of our primary Windows 2003 file sharing system. It
just takes WAY too long.

Part of the problem is the sheer number of files/directories per drive
-- I'm working with the Intel/Windows admin group to try some changes
when we swap this system out in November.

Part of the problem is that the directory structure is scattered over a
mass of other backups. I'm looking for suggestions on this.

The system is co-located by drive, but only for five of the nine logical
drives on the system. I may have to bite the bullet and run all nine
logical drives through co-location.

Is there any way to force the directory structure for a given drive to
the same management class/storage pool as the data? I'm thinking I may
have finally come up with a use for a second domain, with the default
management class being the one that does co-location by drive. If I go
this route -- how do I migrate all of the current data? Export/Import?
How do I clean up the off-site copies? Delete volume/backup storage

I'm on TSM Server, with a 5.3 (not sure of exact level) client.
