    USB Backup Drive


    We have a small site with a 2012 domain server, which is also the file server. I was looking at adding a backup method and wondered if anyone had any advice or guidance into using a USB harddrive to do a scheduled local daily backup including the system state to

    The site has a online offsite backup in place currently and would keep that, just wanted an additional local backup method without spending too much money

    Any advice?
