    There are many solutions out there to backup up file servers and AD. You'll first need to think about what you plan on backing this data to (media). Will you be using tapes, other disks? How long do you need to retain the backups for? How quickly do you need to restore the data?

    Windows has its own backup software that you can use, but you may also want to consider 3rd party backup software. A simple internet search will provide more information.
