client computer backups on SBS 2011 essentials server
Posted on 2012-09-13
I've joined several computers to a SBS 2011 essentials domain and the backups were setup automatically on the server. What I didn't know was that these had to go to an internal drive on the server.
I plan on putting a 2TB drive in the server for the sole purpose of storing these backups, but can anyone tell me how the data is retained? Will it be overwritten automatically, or will it require management of space on my part? Are the backups a full backup nightly, or only changed items? Are versions kept?
There will only be 5 computers being backed up. Currently three computers were backed up and it took 180GB
