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!

The backup solution from CloudBacko is quite possibly the best that there is, certainly the best that I've found. Considering that it is free and well supported by the windows server 2012, you probably can't find a better solution. I currently used this backup and till no issue with storage too.

Some people like the convenience of online backups, others have security concerns about their data being "elsewhere".  While there are plenty of online backup options with extensive security precautions taken, I have plenty of clients who don't want to know about it.  They prefer installing something like Windows Server Backup and managing their own USB drives rotation so the office manager always has at least one backup drive at home (offsite from the office).

Just another idea for you.
