Don’t underestimate the power of Windows Backup

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks, so with all the crazy and cool software packages out there, we often overlook some of the simplest things right in front of our noses.

In this case I’m talking about NT backup, or Windows backup as it’s commonly referred to. This is the built-in backup into every Windows operating system that people can use to backup their systems.

Often, putting in an enterprise backup solution can be very expensive. Sometimes you only need this type of solution at the head office, and for small branch offices that aggregate backups to head office, you only need a cheap, quick and dirty solution. Windows backup is great for that!

You can easily configure it and then configure a script to email you the results of whether it failed or succeeded. The next time you are planning backup for a small business this is worth looking into!
