You need a separate physical Linux server with internal drives – and, for all practical scenarios – a Windows machine running 24/7, typically a Windows Server, though Windows 10/11 will do.

Hi all

After spending much time on this, due to my very limited knowledge about Linux, I wrote up a guide on the topic:

In these days of malware attacks, immutable backups are a must-have.
