Hi there, I run a small trading company and I've got 2 PCs running to a central Windows file server and I want to have an offsite backup in case my office burnt down or the hard drives went out. All the work files from both computers are already synced to the server directly. I need a backup solution, storage space is not a huge problem as the files are not that large, but I don't want to be bound by a storage limit. I'm currently running two machines that use Windows 8 and the server runs Windows Server 2012. Any suggestion to back up the server, and the two computers for a total protection? Thanks a lot! :bowdown:

Your best bet is a cloud solution.  Carbonite comes to mind but there are many others.  Google can help with that.

I've heard of Carbonite. They seems to be competing head to head with Mozy before. It said $26999 per year for 250GB cloud storage from their website. Hmm... this is within my budget. How's the speed? Just googled this: http://www.geek.com/news/carbonite-loses-customer-backups-sues-promise-technology-723352/ Happened years ago and problem should have been fixed. I may give them a try. Thanks.

We have started using Carbonite server At my company and have a few of our servers protected with it. You can setup  to backup to local drive AND cloud storage so have both. You also have options for incremental and full backup schedules. We haven't tested disaster recovery yet so I can't speak to that aspect yet.

Ever thought about Shadow Protect to a small NAS? Could be located in your house and replicate from work to home by opening a port or create a VPN.

you could set up an FTP server at your house or if you have a second office with good bandwidth install it there. Then pick a good FTP backup tool to move stuff over. I would use FTPS as a bare minimum, or SFTP

Our company has used CloudBacko for cloud backup. It is really cost effective as it only requires a one-time fee. It supports multiple cloud destinations. We are now using Google Cloud because cost is minimal.
