I'm looking for a highly reliable option to backup data(not the Bare Metal or System State but various shared folders) from a Windows Server 2008 R2 to another 2008 R2 server. Servers are located in two different locations.
I would like to have folders backed up in it's original hierarchy, not in an image/ISO file, scheduled nightly, store full-backups for 7 days and 1st one to be deleted on 8th.
How could I achieve the above either thru built-in Windows Server Backup or any other open source/commercial app please. Would it help in anyway if I join Servers(both are Domain Controllers) via "Forest/External Trust"?
Thanks a million in advance.
