Web Site Backup Window

Several days ago the web site fell victim to some script kiddies who, once I discovered they were exploiting the site, retaliated and whipped out MySQL. I managed to recover -- in fact installing some well needed updates in the effort -- the missing components and restore the site.

I am looking for a backup window. I would need about 4 hours to copy the full 36GB disk that is Aural Moon. I would like to do this on a monthly basis at a minimum.

Those of you who idle away your hours here most would be most affected by taking the site down so I'm asking you when you think a good window would be to do this. I would forward web requests to another server during the backup to provide a minimal notice that the site is down for backup.
