I am looking for a reliable offsite daily backup for my servers. What are the best and most cost effective?

What servers would those be?  Servers don't normally run Win 7, the forum you posted this topic in.

If you are a smaller organization it may be better to use paid backup services like SOS or Carbonite. They are really not expensive and take a lot of the 'hassle' out of off site backup.

Moderator, you are correct we are not running windows on the server. First time asking a question in the forum....A couple of our desktops have been hit with the Cryptolocker virus so I am trying to protect the servers. At least get a back up of the info dailey.

 

Senior member - Do you know if these back up can do a mirror like back up?

Yes, these type of offsite&online backups can be mirror and archival...

 

We use Backup Pc here, which does just that, mirrored archived backups, free to boot too... We have a second identical rack in another building also, which helps. Being in an industrial situation we afford 0 downtime though, which justifies the expense of this. Hope this helps a bit.
