Yes, you certainly can use MS Backup if that is your preference A typical backup method is doing an incremental backup daily, then a full back up once a week But, if this a little over-the-top, perhaps you can modify this method to an incremental backup once a week and a full backup once a month It all depends on your paranoia level, and/or preference.
