The latest versions of BackupAssist work with Server 2008R2 Windows Backup, so you might just need to upgrade. Also, you can recover deleted files from Volume Shadow Copies by right clicking the folder> Properties >Previous Versions, find the date you want and click Open.

I don't have the absolute latest version of BackupAssist, so I'll update and see if the new one can do incremental backups.
As for the volume shadow copy, we have that enabled but I must confess I didn't realise you could use it on whole folders. If I restored a folder to Friday's copy, would it not also revert any changes I had made to other documents on Monday though?

Latest version of BackupAssist installed, and I still can't do incremental backups - the only option I have under Mode and Method is "automatic".
Also, I've just tried recovering a few files using Windows Server Backup, both old files and files created yesterday, and get the error message that the file wasn't found. The backup file size looks right to be a full backup, though.

Yes, if you did a whole folder restore, but you can select the date and click open, which lets you browse the point-in-time folder contents.

I was blown away when I discovered this first time round. Would be great if the previous versions interface integrated seamlessly with backup to remote storage! Remember folks that end users can do their own restores with previous versions. The client is built right into windows vista and higher. The XP client is a download from Microsoft.

I use robo but not the mir
e /z /copyAT /r:3 /w:30 /v /XD "$RECYCLE.BIN" "System Volume Information" /TEE
This just adds files or updates them but never deletes. When the drive is full I will dump it in the safe and start with a new one. Obviously this is only any good in a small school.

I look after single server primary schools (some do have more servers) but they do not have loads of free space on the servers and the offsite backups are charged by file size.
Just out of interest how much extra space is consumed when volume shadow copy is enabled?

depends how much space you assign it by default iirc 10%

For example if you assign 10% it will delete the oldest shadow copy first when it runs out of its assigned space
