Windows 10 Backup Server?

I hope this is the appropriate place to post this inquiry.

Hard to believe, but I'm still running WHS v1. It backs up my Win 10 Pro desktop. I've used it to backup other Windows machines over the years but they are retired now.

I am looking for a backup solution that offers bare metal restore, disk drive restore, and file restore.

I'm researching Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows FREE.

Anyone with experience backing up and restoring with Veeam for Microsoft Windows?

Separately, I am trying Backblaze for online cloud backup. Seems decent so far but I consider it a secondary backup solution. I want an onsite server for backups.

What are others using to backup their Win 10 machines?

The free included windows 7 based image backup still works perfectly in windows 10. It creates a mountable virtual disk and an emergency bare metal boot disk.

If you want to restore individual files, just go into disk manager and mount the virtual disk image to any drive letter that is unused.

You can backup the virtual disk image file to backblaze. Just go into your backblaze settings and take vhd files out of the exclude list.

Easy, quick and free

I have been using AOMEI Backupper free edition and it has worked to save my system already at least once. I back up to my FreeNas box.
