Bare metal vs system state + files
Primary school backup question.
We currently have off site backup which backs up system state and all the files, along with this I occasionally plug in a 1tb usb drive and run system state along with robocopy which copies any changed files over.
With my USB drive would I be better of doing a full 'bare metal' backup?
I was going to do this but have read that due to requiring the exact same hardware to restore a 'bare metal' backup it is better just to do system state and re-install the OS fresh.
