I want to create a disk image file for a Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation as part of a disaster recovery plan. Currently I use syncback to make duplicate copies of the data on the server. My C drive is about to run out due to the SQL database on it. So I am either going to have to increase the disk space on C or move the database. I just added a 3TB external HD since my previous external filled up.
So first issue is the disk image. I assume that is my best option for a quick recovery from a disk crash, and I can then just copy the data back over.
I welcome any answers and also suggestions as to how to improve my disaster recovery without much capital outlay.
Thanks in advance
