There are many ways to implement a backup solution, some are free and easy, others are expensive and hard, and any combination in between.
We think Robocopy is a great way to get your data backed up quickly, easily and reliably. With a scheduled task and a few lines in a .bat file, you can have a safe, reliable and best of all, FREE way of getting your data from A to B.
- Take a look at the Robocopy Script Example on this site, and tune it to your liking.
- Setup your Scheduled Task to run the script as regularly as you need it, and make sure it has the appropriate NTFS permissions to do so.
- Grab a copy of Robocopy Log Scanner, which will email you any errors that occur.
- Finally, make sure the destination is in turn backed up again onto tape, or different USB disks - this ensures there are multiple versions of data incase you need them.
