Need to backup Windows Server

More and more people realize the importance of backup and many of them suffered data loss before. People choose to backup personal PC to external hard drive or other safe places to protect data. In fact, the protection for data on Windows Server operating systems is also important, maybe more important.

Usually, Windows Server stores customers’ information, business profiles, working projects, etc. of a company or enterprise. The cost for those data loss is really hard to predict when some serious problems happen, such as system crush, virus infection, hacker attack, hard disk failure, human error and so on. Besides, one Server operating system often has multiple client machines.

Luckily, regular backups save lives in those situations. An administrator could make everything back to life by simply restoring images backed up before, saving time, effort and money.

In addition, a well-configured system backup image could be used to deploy a large scale of computers from network, or perform bare metal recovery, no need to install Windows on those machines one by one.

What Need to be Considered before Backup

As for the task of data backup, the first mission is to choose reliable and powerful Windows Server backup software. About this issue, there are several elements that need to be taken into consideration in advance.

Selection of a backup storage type

There are several types of backup storage, such as, a hard disk drive, a separate storage device, etc. Choosing separate storage equipment is better, because the backup can be created and then stored in different places from the computer, which can protect against the hard disk failure. Choosing the hard disk backup is more convenient, but it can not protect against sudden events.

Backup Schedule

Before backup, the schedule is also an important element that needs to be considered. The users should choose a time that the data and files on Server are not used to back up. Because the operation of backup would skip over the files or programs that are open or in use.

Permissions on Backup

When performing the operation of backup, you must have certain permission or user right. For example, if you are a backup operator or an administrator in a local group, you can back up any data or files on the local computer. But if you are not an administrator or a backup operator, you can back up the files only if you are the owner id the files or you have either of the following permissions: read, read and execute, modify, or full control.
