Windows Server 2008 Remote/FTP Backup

view story

http://serverfault.com – I'm using Windows Server 2008, and have the requirement to backup system state and data to a remote location. What's the best way to do this, unfortunately it appears Windows Server Backup doesn't allow this, and I'm not usually a fan of 3rd party backup software as if the need to restore it arises I'm of the opinion it's more difficult to restore. Cheers. (HowTos)
