Microsoft will be ending support for Office 2013 through Office 365 ProPlus on February 28th, 2017. According to their TechNet article, “We recommend that you upgrade to the Office 2016 version of Office 365 ProPlus as soon as possible.”. While Microsoft will force users to upgrade their Office installation this does not include Office installations through Professional Plus, Professional, and Standard editions. So basically, if you are leveraging Office licensing via Office 365 you will be forced to upgrade.
When it comes to backing up your server or workstations you have a couple of options. You can choose between a file level backup & disaster recovery or an image level backup but how do you choose? The file level option will back up individual files, folders or storage volumes such as the hard drives in your machine. Image level will take a snapshot of your computer at a given point in time.
