My Windows home server is aging and I keep thinking about just puttng up a copy of Win 10 and getting a new backup program.  One of the things I really like about Home Server is the automatic backup of my home computers.  While I know there are many backup programs I could buy, I have too many computers (9) in my house to spend the money on a copy of a program for each computer.  I'm looking for economical and easy backup programs to automatically backup every night on each computer.  Got any ideas for me to look at.  Most all data we use is on shared folders of the server so looking for system type backup that will catch all the little things that users have saved locally.

One MR license covers 5 computers -- unless they changed the license policy.

If it just the data, use robocopy and a NAS in a RAID to backup each machine nightly. If you looking for full image backups - Acronis home 5 user license is $99.99 right now so $200 bucks would get you 10 licenses.
