I'm setting up a basic Windows fileserver to replace a Linkstation NAS. It is a relatively low use/demand, with not more than 50 new or editted files per day, not more than 50MB of changed, and 5MB of new material per day, on average. The main HDD (640GB) is as follows: C:\ system partition 20GB D:\ data drive, requiring frequent backup 300GB E:\ data drive, requiring occasional backup 300GB I'm looking for advice/suggestions on a suitable data security / backup / recovery method. My initial thoughts are the following: 1/ Set up Volume Shadow Services to maintain a daily file-copy on the main HDD, which provides rollback to the user in the case of basic file management mistakes 2/ Install a second HDD (also 640GB) on the machine 3/ Run Cobian backup to make a copy of the D and E drives on to the second HDD. There would be a full backup once per month, plus a differential backup done daily at 2am. Is this a good setup? Any other ideas? Suggestions welcome and appreciated. I have also seen Acronis Backup & Recovery, but this is too expensive. Looking for cheap but effective solutions. Can spend to a small budget, but not hundreds.
