Windows Server 2008 R2 Backup Folders

Hello,

I have a Windows Server that is running 2008 R2, and there are a couple folders that I want to backup.  I would like to keep an archive of these folders and files and have it backed up everyday and have them over written once a week, so basically I would have folders for Monday-Friday.  I know there are a few options and I am trying to find the easiest, most cost effective one.  I use to use NTBACKUP on our older servers and that worked perfectly, but now that has been replaced by Windows Backup, but that only backs up the partitions that I want once, and over writes it each time.  I am not a fan of Symantec Backup Exec, and I am not too familiary with the X Copy commands.  Basically I am looking for an NTBACKUP type solution for Windows Server 2008 R2.  What would you recommend?

Thanks!


Randy

i would recommend using VSS (previous versions) on the files during the week and then do a full backup of the files weekly using xcopy...

or you could look into something like syncback of syncrify

Thanks for the suggestions, I actually found this program that is very similar to NTBACKUP if anyone is interested:

Backup Of folders is upgraded and available in Win2k8 R2 version, If not R2 you need to use power shell or Xcopy for the same.
