And make OFF-LINE backups regularly and keep a few older ones around.
(online backups might get encrypted as well.)

What is the best method to do a server backup ?  

Kindly note this is a 480Gb ssd which has no raid. Loaded with a Proxmox virtual environment and already 4years old

a simple COPY or XCOPY for all documents would work perfectly.

the key here is to keep the backup offline, separated physically, or at least accessed with different privileges.  it doesn't matter what kind of backup it is, but a simple COPY or XCOPY operation will make its regular update flexible and simple.

a whole server backup including system is recommended for a newly built server.
