I'm interning at a small business who runs Windows Server 2008. I'm looking into doing some backup work for them but I've never used Windows Server 2008 and have a few questions I'm confused about when using the integrated Windows Server Backup utility.
1. If I attach an external USB HDD to the server, can I backup and access different versions of backups? For instance, if I back up Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday every week, will it overwrite last week Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday backups? Or would this be considered backing it up remotely?
2. Does the WSB encrypt the backups? I understand I can right click on every folder and file and encrypt them but when the backups are produced, are they encrypted?
3. Can I run onsite and offsite back ups? I guess this would include media rotation for more than one external hard drive but also could I run a program like Carbonite simultaneously with WSB? Would there be any conflicts?
Thank you in advance for your time.
