I do a complete backup of my Mac server using Carbon Copy Cloner. I copy the entire HD to an external HD then I boot to the external HD just to make sure it functions. If the server HD dies or gets corrupted (which has happened in the past) I can just
plug in the external drive and at least function from my last backup. The only bad thing is that all services need to stop during the backup.
I'm not sure what you could use for a Windows server and I wonder if it gets more complicated depending on your RAID level.
