Hello, I have a client with a 2008R2 file server. They have a basic 4TB external hard drive that I need to use to backup their files to while we look for a permanent backup solution. I was going to use robocopy, but I was wondering if there were any other free software solutions that I would use to backup files off that server to their locally attached USB HD? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
