The 300MB .vbk size is for the file server only. My whole environment .vbk is 1 TB. :)
So it can only handle 3 restore points. 4 is pushing it.

Storage Spaces is very interesting. Thank you for the link.
The problem is the remote PC OS is Win 7 Pro where the USB drive attached to.
Another thing that I'm worried about is data corruption when one drive goes bad. I might as well do a NAS at the offsite location.
Have you had any success with Storage Spaces?
I might have to do a little research.

I see your point. In a case of disaster with one of three USB Drives you may loose 1/3 of backups. Just like you can loose backups from NAS in the same case.
The best way to avoid it is to have several copies of the backups. There is also Veeam Surebackup option for the recoverability testing. Please take a look.

To say the truth, personally I do not have a lot of experience working with Storage Spaces, but it should work with no problems. Thanks!
