Depends on your company's IT policies. I have seen some companies where IT will not touch a production PC since it was not a standard IT issue PC, I have also seen some companies IT department do normal backups of the machines. (personally) whoever created the program should have a copy of it just in case, and try to have IT regularly back up the machines.

My ideal situation would be to keep 2 backups. Add a new backup when a new program is added and cycle out the oldest one.

We run our company like this:

If you see job to do then it is yours.

usually I try to get IT to come up with auto method if machines are networked.

How about, "Who is the person who'll be called in to spend the weekend getting the machine back up and running after a crash? If it's your home phone number on the maintenance supervisor's speed dial then it's in your best interest to have a back up disk in your desk drawer." That's the bottom line with me, although we do have some networked equipment that lends itself to being backed up by the IT Department.

In the same line of thought as Bob R.

The people that should be backing up the machine's software programs are the people that would be most affected by not backing it up.
