Hi,

 

I have file server running on windows server 2008 standard. Recently, we have 1 to 5 users have been attacked by ransomware, so we afraid that it could infected the file server.

 

We are looking your expert technical advise what is the best method to backup or create image for storage server ?

 

Is it we can only use built in windows program or 3rd party software ?

 

Thank you

You can use Windows Server Backup. However I would use rotating backup media so all of the backups are not encrypted by the virus (use two external hard drives and rotate them every day). Other options include Storagecraft Shadow Protect , and Carbonite Server. Both of the latter options have protection from crypto viruses, and Carbonite stores your backup locally and in the cloud.

Adding further to what sneaky has already said, i would also think about veeam endpoint backup free, it allows you to create the boot ISO image containing all the drivers for the host and also the windows image.

https://www.veeam.com/endpoint-backup-free.html

 

Also if you already use or have a veeam server you can then create a new backup repository and then send the backup job to the veeam server.

Thjis will bring the whole system to full working order, plus its FREE.

Is Windows Server Backup features come with email notification alert? for example I did schedule backup and the backup was failed or interrupted, can it send email notification to the administrator / user ?

For email alerts with Windows Server Backup,  you need to create a scheduled task or pull the event log and send it. See this topic on Spiceworks (look for the "Best Answer").
