|What backup software do you have?|
In sql you can do database disk dumps which put the database into a file. You then back these up to tape. MS requires you backup every database and the Master database. Without the master its difficult to restore.
A number of server backup programs have what are called agents you buy separately from the backup. Agents like backing up directly a sql database. Open file agent, etc.
You need to document a backup plan which is a subset of a disaster recovery plan.
Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
