Windows 2012 Backup

I'm trying to set the Windows native backup solution over a network drive that is actually residing on a NAS but I get this message that the last backup will be overwritten by the new one. Is there a way to fix that so I can have a couple of weeks worth of backups?

Not in an automated way. Windows Server Backup does not automatically keep or prune backups when backing up to an SMB share. You can always manually copy the old backup files to a different location before making a new one.

As said above no. This is the limitation in Windows Server Backup. If you want to have a more flexible backup solution then have a look on this: http://www.paragon-software.com/small-business/hdm-business/
Otherwise you can create another share on the NAS and point backup task to it.
