    Server 2012 Network Backup

    I am running Windows Server 2012 Essentials. I would like to find out if the client computers can be backed up to a networked drive, such as the WD MyCloud, since I have a lot of free space! I saw a TechNet article about backing up the serer computer to a 'shared network folder.' I cannot find the like for client computers. Any thoughts?

    Here is the TechNet article I read:

    If you want a centrally managed backup that allows you to save anywhere you either pay for a commercial product or use the Amanda Community edition, or just buy a nice big disk for your server and set up a routine to copy the data from it to the WD every day for additional security.

    cheers, Paul
