I have a SBS 2003 Premium server that has quite a lot of data in the network shares and I'm looking to archive what I can from the server to a NAS drive. The reason I'm looking to do this is that total size of the server is 200GB+ and the backups are taking an increasingly long time to complete.
So I'm thinking that the best option here is to run some form of 'archiving' program against the drive to ascertain what files can be moved. Have the program move the files to a new location (or give me the option to do so) - probably some form of NAS device. Create a backup of the files copied and store this offsite and have this new area read-only. If users wish to update a file in this area then they'll need to perform a 'save as' and add it back to the original area of the server for 'read-write' operations but if they've not access the file in a while then this probably wouldn't be a problem.
Anyone aware of what I could use to perform such an action? Any ideas appreciated as always.
