client backup of files

Last Modified: 2018-08-14
We are in a small office and we backup user files with a program to the a file server (WINDOWS SERVER 2012).  The backup runs each day for each user.  I know that this is not the standard way to backup so I would like instructions on how to do it properly by  having the files of each user reside on the file server and each user has access to only their files.  Part of the question is how do I set this up so I can keep a copy of the user files on the client's computer and also on the server?
