Offsite NAS Backups
Posted on 2010-11-28
Have an SBS 2003 box with a single Hdd.
It holds OS on C: Page file on D: User docs and server data on E: & F: respectively.
C: has developed a 4kb bad sector (as listed on chkdsk report. I want to replace the disk and at the same time introduce raid 1 as a new configuration. So 2 replacement disks will replace this possibly failing single disk.
If I use the default SBS backup utility and select the Option to "back up everything on this computer" then remove and replace the disks then restore from the back up taken, will everything be as was but on the new disks or am I looking at this too simplistically?
I would also like to Employ an offsite back up procedure and have looked at the Seagate BlackArmor 220.
Does anyone have experience of this device and could it be used as an offsite depository for backups taken using the SBS utility.
I.E have the Seagate at home and set up the SBS backup to send via a VPN connection to the Seagate overnight?
