Recently we’ve had quite a few people ask about imaging their Server 2008 (or SBS 2008) machine to a NAS.
It *is* possible to backup to NAS using BackupAssist (whereas it is not using the built-in scheduler wizards). However, there are some important limitations you need to be aware of when doing this.
We also have a recommended alternative that is around the same price, but delivers far better results: we recommend backing up to a locally connected USB or eSATA HDD.
I’ve written an article that fully explains the pros and cons of imaging to NAS, and contrasts it with a our recommended alternative.
