Server backup is a main feature of Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essential, Windows Home Server 2011 and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials. It will back up the customer selected items to a destination volume regularly. These backups can be used to restore the files if they are deleted by mistake or by malware.
