Windows File Server Backup

Key Features at a Glance

File server is widely used by many companies who need to provide their departments with constant access to specific files stored on their server. This is accomplished with the help of shared disk access, which allows you to change or delete files on department servers if you have been granted the necessary permissions. This may sometimes lead to files being deleted or wrongly modified due to simple human error. Without the means to protect file server, the company may suffer the loss of critical business data.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can prevent the loss or corruption of files stored on your Windows Servers, allowing you to quickly recover whatever files you need.
