  • Hi Sohanpal Gola,

    Thanks for your post.

    As far as I know, if you want to windows server to backup all the clients, it might be better to consider use windows server 2012 essentials.

    Windows Server 2012 Essentials includes a feature called Client Restore, that allows the user to perform a bare metal restore of their client computer that was backed up to Windows Server 2012 Essentials. And you could also change the scheduled.


    Set up backup for a client computer:
    Open the Dashboard, and then click the Devices tab.
    Click the name of the client computer that you want to set up backup for, and then in the Tasks pane, click Set up Backup for this computer.
    In the Set Up Backup Wizard, you can choose to back up all of the folders or select certain folders that you want to back up. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
    Click Close when backup is set up for the computer.

    You could also confirm in windows Essentials forum.

    Best Regards,

    Mary Dong
