Scheduled Backup using multiple disks in Windows 2008 Server
Posted on 2014-11-21
Asking your advice and input on the following. We have recently replaced a Win 2003 server with a Windows 2008 server. This server acts as our secondary DMC and File server. We want to backup every night alternatively using 2 drives ... one of our users will take 1 of the drives offsite to his house every night. I have tried Built in Windows 2008 server Backup utility and Task Scheduler but looks like Windows 2008 DOES NOT allow scheduled backup with multiple disks....a dedicated disk is required,
My questions are:
1. Is there anyway I can perform scheduled backup alternatively using 2 drives using built-in Windows 2008 utility?
2. If not, do you recommend any 3rd party backup software...any reliable free software?
Any help/ideas/links to learn Windows 2008 backup is highly appreciated.
