Today I’m with you to learn how to get back up in Windows server 2019, be with OperaVPS to learn about Windows Server.
Nowadays, backing up data has become unavoidable, and you should always have a backup of your server in a secure location so that you can restore your data in times of emergency when a server problem or drive becomes inaccessible.
The best storage option for backups is USB flash drive or external hard drive because if you back up the backup to the internal hard drive server, the backup will be lost if you have a problem. USB storage can be stored in a secure and convenient location and can be used to restore your server when needed.
Backup server storage on NAS Storage is also not recommended due to the possibility of malware being infected.
