I'd like a nutshell explanation of windows server backup on my Windows Server 2016.
I ran it yesterday to backup to my F drive.
I ran it again today, and it seems to have overwritten my files for 2/22 and now they are all updated to 2/23 on my F drive.
So I take it there are no "previous" versions like with a system restore, where you can go back to an earlier version? It's just replaced?
what are best practices for scheduling and running the windows server backups?
I only did the 2 on demand.
Also, I did the Custom instead of Full Server, I added:
Bare metal recovery
local disk C
it transfered 33.19MB for system reserved and 110.73GB for C drive.
the other option of using Full Server instead of Custom, is backing up 277.90 GB. Is it also backing up my D drive? What's going on here?
It says server data, applications, and system state.
How does it know not to backup my backup on the F drive?
