I am just wondering if anyone uses the native 2008R2 backup. I have always used storagecraft but am trying to lower costs. I presume 2008R2 is file based and would have issues restoring to different hardware. Thanks.

yes that is Correct.. Windows 2008 R2 is file level backup.. you can backup files and folder..
and storage craft if volume level backups where you do not have option to select only files or folder..

Storage craft advantages are. if server get failed then you can restore full server on different hardware where in 2008 backup option you have to build server ( installing Os. application and then restore data from backup)

more over  native 2008R2 backup is only if you want to backups any specific files or folder..

depend on the critical situaltion you can plans your backup policy.

if you feel server is critical and you cant have long downtime then go for Storagecraft.

There are many more features which you will not get in native backups
