Backup high volume drives in the shared folder on NAS

In this article, you will be taught how to Backup high volume drives in the shared folder on NAS. Thanks to the use of UEFI and GPT technologies, you can store large volumes of data in Windows Server 2012. The main problem with this huge amount of data is backing it up. If you don’t have a financial or budget problem, you can use third-party software and back up multiple servers. But if your organization is weak in terms of IT budget, Windows Server 2012 is the right solution.

Backup high volume drives in the shared folder on NAS

Many IT managers who are financially conscious use the 2012 server to back up USB drives. High-volume USB drives have the problem of limiting 4096 bytes per sector. When you back up USB drives with a size of 3 or 4 terabytes, the backup fails. So how do you back up high-volume drives without spending a fortune?

A good solution is to use NAS and run Incremental backup. There are many different NASs on the market, one of which is the Seagate brand.

      In NAS or Network Attached Storage, hard disks are housed on a server called NAS Storage. These drives are then shared on the network for other devices.
      In fact, it is connected to the storage via the TCP / IP protocol and is serviced from it.

      – Manually copy data to an external hard drive, flash drive or second internal hard drive
      – Use of cloud technology such as Google Drive or Dropbox
      – Backup on the Internet
      And of course, if you use network servers, you can back up your data manually or automatically using special software on special storage such as NAS or SAN.
