we are in the process of acquiring a new server. Currently the server is a Mac mini late 2012, but the replacement could be a PC server with Windows Server.
Time Machine is installed on the Mac mini, so if for any reason we need to restore the boot drive, it's quite easy. But then, when the server is running on Windows Sever, how can we make it so if a drive goes bananas or another issue affects the boot drive - we all know it never occurs that Microsoft issues ill formed patches - what tool can we use that will automatically provide what's needed to recover the boot drive ?
It's nice to have server grade hardware, but that's not all what's need to rapidly recover from an issue.
