    Server 2K3 Backup

    I am just about to build a small NAS box for our 2k3 servers which will be located in a different building on our site basically giving us an offsite backup.

    The hardware side of things am fine with. Its just the software, I really can't decide which is the best method to backup the data so am now asking for suggestions.

    Thanks
    Daniel

    What data - system state? Or files and folders?

    For files, I'm a broken record; always recommending Robocopy as it's free, built in and powerful. There are plenty of alternatives though.

    Both system state and data. Not in the same backup though.

    I have used Robocopy before on my personal server at home, so that could well be an option.

    For system state I have just used the built in backup utility before but I fell its not very user friendly.
