If you’re performing full image backups to NAS or RDX, you’ll want to seriously consider making a data container; especially for point in time restores.
BackupAssist’s suite of backup types includes System Protection, our recommended backup type for Windows servers. This article looks at the requirements and advantages of different backup destinations for System Protection backups.
We’ve looked at how Data containers add flexibility to System Protection backups, by providing restore points from incremental backups and making the backups more portable. Now we would like to tell you about another advantage – ease of use.
Our brand new major release of BackupAssist, version 7.1 is now available to download, and is set to give you more flexibility in the way you protect your systems and data. V7.1 brings many of the features you’ve been asking like support for Exchange 2013, enhanced support for Server 2012 and history for imaging backups
It’s great having your System Protection backups on other media. If your server decides to stop working or a hard drive breaks, your data is safely stored on another device. Once your server is fixed, you can restore any of the image backups you made from whatever media they are on … in most cases.
