Tens of gigabytes.

Just one, I believe. It's a fileserver for a bunch of other machines.
And only one linux server.

For the "large" amounts, just have the data available. For the linux
server, probably the whole machine.

Unknown at this time. Probably... monthly?

Unknown as well.

As little as possible, given the circumstances.

Thanks! I'll try to get back with more information; it was only my
first day on the job and I'm not in charge.
