I’m onto the next step in setting up my system. I have gotten the Server to be able to backup the local machines. I am moving most data files to the server as well.
My server is the 4TB version, which means 2TB of storage. I went with this size as I read/was told that the backup service only works for 2TB.
So now I’m planning on adding an external USB3.0 drive to the server. This would be where I would backup everything that is stored on the server. I believe the type of backup do should be incremental-which I understand to mean that it will back everything up once, then on a daily basis it will just backup what changed that day.
Should this drive be set up the same size as my storage limit (i.e. 2TB) or should I get something bigger? Cost is not really a factor-as the larger drive only costs a little bit more, and my data is worth it to me. To get a 2TB is about $150, and a 4TB is about $200. I just don’t want to get something that is not going to work with Windows Backup. In other words I don’t really understand the 2TB limit, and how to apply it.
Also when setting up the backup, is this something I do by Remote Desktop into the server, and setting up the backup there? or is it something on the DX4000 dashboard-because if it is on the dashboard, I can’t find it.
