I would like to know if it's possible to incrementally backup a Windows Server 2003 used as a File Server retaining all the permissions (NTFS & Share permissions) using Symantec Backup Exec 12.5.

If it's Symantec Backup Exec is not the best solution I wouldn't mind pointing me to an alternative and more practical way.

Thank you,

    yes that is absolute possible with BE 12.5 as it was with all versions before. You can also do differential backups with that solution.
    You can also have a continuous protection service with BE 12.5 which replicates all data to another location for a just in time backup.

    Thank you McClane,

    So I can use the standard agent for windows servers? Do I need any other licenses?

    If you don't have other servers or exchange, sql, sharepoint or other services you want to backup granulary, no.
