I've got a single server running 2008 R2 Standard, with Remote Desktop Services installed (no active directory installed). We are a small company so I don't have a lot of help in getting all this up and running. So right now I do a bare metal
backup each night (actually around 1 am) to an external hard drive and in the case were the server dies, I get another server, and using the bare metal backup and my Server 2008 R2 DVD, restore the image. My question is: Is this the best way to do this?
Is there a better way? Is the bare metal I run each night just copying the difference from the night before or is it completely replacing the whole image each night? Should I create a single "master" bare metal backup once and then do another
kind of backup to make things quicker?
