I'm about to encrypt a (TPM installed and Preparaion tool allready run) a 2008 std server joined to an SBS 2003 domain. Among other worries in my mind (the first one for me) I wonder if I can encrypt 2008 server's local Image and Data backups (created with 2008 server¨s own backup tools) which are stored to external USB disks connected to 2008 server?
Any considerations here? What if the 2008 server crashes totally. Can I restore files to another server? Can I restore image to another (harwware compabtible) server? Actually. Is it a good idea to encrypt USB backups (in case of stolen)?
