We have a an older server that is Linux based operating system Cent OS

This server is used to hold and operate a legacy program that is needed - nothing will be  added to the program or server

Should something happen to this server we would have to pay the company to set it up a large fee since we are no longer using their services

What would be the best way to back this server up?

I know very little about Linux so I need some hand holding (instructions)

Would creating a virtual server be an option?

I could not even find how much data the drives hold- Can someone tell me how this can be done?

How about being able to remote to this server from a Windows PC?

This server is not on the domain just set up in a workgroup
