Typically in a corporate environement, you have ghosts. You build one machine and ghost it. Once you need another machine in production, or one breaks, you re-ghost it.

In my honest opinion, you have very complex problems (on the surface), but anyone with an HONEST IT role, would already have those Industry STANDARD PRACTICES in place.

As far as the whole back up goes, you shouldn't ever worry about the client machines, as the files they use should be in a central locale that gets backed up dialy, with the media changed out, for a seven day cycle of media. Once a week a scheduled pick up should be in pace to take that weeks worth of data off site(in the event of fire flood).

So, be prepared for a seperate resource to act as backup manager, with a high end media writer.
