Windows Server Backup and Disaster Recovery
Posted on 2016-08-24
I have set up several of my clients setup to use the Windows Server Backup on various different versions of Windows Server Products 2008 or later.
At the same time, I always encourage them to use a disaster recovery backup as well, such as Carbonite or Mozy, in the event of a fire or some disaster. Most of them will agree to paying the extra for the cloud backups. However, some of my clients can't afford to cough up $500 + per year for this.
So, my question is: If I set them up using 2 or more destination (external) hard drives with Windows Server Backup, can I simply switch the hard drives and take most recent backup drive off site for disaster recovery? I don't know if Windows Server Backup is making a new full backup when I switch the hard drives.
Does anyone know the answer to this question? I haven't been able to find any info on this online. Just basic user instructions.
