We have a client who are not going to update their server at present. They are running SBS 2003 . Yes I am aware this is unsupported. :(
However . We need to get a backup solution working until they upgrade their server.
Exchange 2003 is heavily used as well as active directory and some SQL databases.

Therefore my question is this.  - Can you recommend a backup / disaster recovery solution for SBS 2003 please e.g that is compatible and tried and tested? We have been using Backup Exec 2012 to backup to NAS drives and have repeated issues every few days and we have lost faith in Backup Exec now.

We backup to NAS drives so the software will need to be compatible with SBS 2003 and to backup to NAS storage please?

Your help and advice is much appreciated.

thank you
