Server online backup

Hello Experts,

I need to find an cloud backup solution for a windows server 2012 server, it's only used as a file server (word, excel, etc),  unfortunately they bought a server when they really just needed a NAS. I have checked the big players such as carbonite, mozy but i feel the price is not justifiable for simply documents backup. What cost effective solutions do you use for environments like this one? we are talking of may be 50 GB of data.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Reliable cloud backup is still relatively expensive (where relative is in comparison to straight cloud storage), no matter what sadly.  If you can't justify Carbonite/Mozy, you probably won't much like the pricing for Amazon or Azure either when it comes to legitimate backup options. There are some oddball niche players out there, but reliability has been spotty, and the *worst* time to find out they weren't reliable is when you need to restore. That's when you found out all that money you saved was less than the money you spent for essentially...nothing.

For this basic needs, you could sign up for a dropbox pro account which provides 1 tb of cloud storage and set up a task on the server to copy the files into the dropbox folder.  That would only be $10 bucks a month.
