I have a network containing 10 Windows workstations and 1 Windows 7 machine which acts as a server. I am planning to take a monthly backup of a folder called "MYFILES" which will be on all of the machines. Each folder size will not be greater than 300MB.
I am thinking of buying a external hard drive and manually copy the folders from all machines. Is it a good idea to buy a new hard drive or should I automate the backup process so that manual task will not be involved?
How do I automate so that all 10 machines folders will be backed up in the cloud as well?
Can we write a script in server so that it will take backup of all machines and stores it? Can it put those files in amazon s3 or whatever?
