  1. Please share us all your the specs so we could help you, guide you on what to set up on that machine.
  2. It looks like the 3-2-1 backup strategy. I see no reason to not implement such a configuration. The only concern is the retention and automation. The automation can be done by scripting or finding the right backup software. What about retention? How would you deal with yearly backups? Will you do ones? I strongly suggest you add a cloud as an archive, rarely used storage since other secondary backup storage is added to the setup. https://www.hyper-v.io/san-nas-public-cloud-lets-pick-secondary-storage/ Backblaze will do the job affordably than other clouds. https://www.backblaze.com/b2/cloud-storage-pricing.html
  3. The following thread should help you. https://support.vpnsecure.me/articles/getting-started-dd-wrt-routers/free-nas-openvpn-client-setup https://www.ixsystems.com/community/threads/step-by-step-to-install-openvpn-inside-a-jail-in-freenas-11-1-u1.61681/
  4. G Suite for Business costs $12 per month for a single user and features unlimited storage. Wasabi and Backblaze cost $6 per month also for unlimited storage.
  5. Configure automated backups using built-in or 3trd party backup tools. Locate backups to a folder that can be automatically synchronized to a cloud. It could be Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, etc. Check the file upload. Double-check file appearance on a PC.
  6. Seconded. Consider backups in the complex of software and hardware components. Ensure your environment is fully covered as might be building the 3-2-1 backup environment. https://www.vmwareblog.org/3-2-1-backup-rule-data-will-always-survive/ I suggest you run Veeam B&R as a VM. It handles VM backups. Use Synology as attached to Veeam B&R VM storage. It could be iSCSI, NFS, and SMB. Configure Veeam backups to NAS and to Azure or AWS, depends on a cloud you what to use. https://anthonyspiteri.net/veeam-backup-replication-10-top-new-features/
  7. Seconded. Check Ironwolfes. Their price is less. https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-IronWolf-5900RPM-Internal-3-5-Inch/dp/B07H289S79
  8. Have you tried Veeam Endpoint? https://www.veeam.com/windows-endpoint-server-backup-free.html It features file-level backup and allows schedule backups. so you could schedule a file-level backup job to your backup NAS by selecting the required folders to backup.
  9. Veeam Endpoint allows to make a whole Windows image backup to local, external and NAS storage. It does not feature backups to a cloud. And that is the reason I have suggested to use rclone as a tool that can handle/offload/upload the Veeam backup file's synchronization from your backup storage to the cloud.
  10. 1. Clonezilla, Macrium Reflect, or Acronis True Image can be used to clone a disk to disk. 2. You should fix this if possible. Add at least another drive or a cloud as backup storage. Use Veeam for entire backups and use Duplicati for file backups. For $6 per month, you can get 1TB of cloud storage. See https://www.backblaze.com/b2/cloud-storage.html 3. Check Samsung PM971 BGA NVMe SSD https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/global.semi.static/Samsung_PM971_BGA_NVMe_SSD_product_biref_170201-0.pdf 4. Another option to increase the storage performance it is to go with RAID 1 (a mirror of two drives). In this case you will gate 2x much read and write IO speed. 5. For an Adata SSD you might use https://www.adata.com/us/ss/software-6/ or similar software. Here is a list. https://www.enterprisestorageforum.com/products/ssd-health-check-test-tools
  11. File copy/sync is not a backup. Please refer to https://medium.com/@files.fm/file-sync-vs-file-backup-42d11d88e2bd For Windows Backup use Veeam or Duplicati. Both are free. Both allow you back up data to local, external, and network storage. I suggest use Duplicati for file-level backups, and Veeam for volume-level, bare-metal ones. https://www.veeam.com/windows-endpoint-server-backup-free.html https://www.duplicati.com/download Duplicati features cloud backups out of the box, but it has no option to make a system image. So, to sync backup files made by Veeam, use could use rclone witch is free file sync software. https://rclone.org/
  12. I agree with Electronics Wizardy. In order to securely back up your data, you should have more than one place to store it. Basically, it is recommended to have 3 copies of your data, on two separate/different storage and one of them offsite. This is the 3-2-1 backup strategy https://www.starwindsoftware.com/blog/3-2-1-backup-strategy-why-your-data-always-survives So if you have an option, use a local drive, external drive, and cloud storage. For local, bare-metal backups I suggest you using Veeam Endpoint or Duplicati. Both are free. Both allow you back up data to local, external, and network storage.https://www.veeam.com/windows-endpoint-server-backup-free.html https://www.duplicati.com/download To sync backup files made by one of the backup software I've mentioned, use rclone. https://rclone.org/ It is also free. Wasabi and Backblaze B2 ask $5-6 for 1TB of data per month and that might be the cheapest cloud storage. https://wasabi.com/cloud-storage-pricing/#three-info https://www.backblaze.com/b2/cloud-storage.html
  13. Owncloud is open-source alternative that can do file sync. However, it is not a backup but just a copy of data. See https://medium.com/@files.fm/file-sync-vs-file-backup-42d11d88e2bd
  14. Rsync and Rclone can do the trick. Syncing files is not backup but just file copy. Check the read. https://smallbusiness.chron.com/explain-difference-between-sync-backup-64783.html
  15. Install/split all the storage (three RAID 1 groups) onto separate hosts in order to follow the 3-2-1 backup rule.You should have at least 3 copies of your data, so configure another host that can also be used as (the second) backup target. https://www.vmwareblog.org/3-2-1-backup-rule-data-will-always-survive/ Cloud is not an option, right?
