Folder Redirections - Files to be backed up
Posted on 2011-09-04
I have setup my file server on windows server 2008 R2 and i will be implementing the folder redirection soon. My purpose is to take the users backup by creating a folder for each user and advising them to put all their important information in that folder and later on i have a Symantec solution which i will be using for backing up my file server.
I have the following concerns
1- In order to take user backup through folder redirection which things i should back up.
2- I can redirect my documents or desktop through GPO but my requirement is to create a folder name lets say "backup" which should show on each user desktop and users will be putting their important data in it. How can i achieve that, i guess some script is required?
3- I have a default mailbox size of 2 GB for each user, but for the PST's, how can i take the backup of the outlook PST's?
I guess i can add favorites for Internet explore in the backup as well.
I need your help to setup this backup scenario as i haven't done it before.
thank you in advance.
