Window Home Server 2011 Backup
Over the next few days or so, I will be exploring ways to backup and/or sync from WHS 2011 to WHS v1. What I am sure of at this time is that I plan on using the HP X510 as my backup plan for my new production WHS. Which means that I cannot use the built-in WHS 2011 backup process, as this tool looks for externally attached drives, not other computers and/or Ethernet drives.
So, I will end this portion of the Windows Home Server 2011 Upgrade right here. Except to anticipate your next question:
- Why did I not have a backup plan already figured out?
I simply do not have enough extra computers and I do not have enough extra HDs laying around to test all the scenarios. I also do not have endless hours to ponder various strategies. I know that there is a solution(s ), and sometimes, it is simply best to ponder the alternative once the need finally comes to a head. Once I come up with a solution that meets my expectations, I will be happy.
Will it be the “best” solution? Perhaps or perhaps not. Again, as long as it meets my expectations for a solution, I will be happy.
So, if you have a backup strategy in mind, please suggest it below in the comment section and I will be back later this week to let you know the direction I am going.
And… please do not suggest RAID. I have no desire to go down that path.
