Form factor would be desktop. This is a ~10-12 person business. They have an original desktop server that's about 10 years old. It's running windows server 2000. It has a 250gb drive partitioned three times. 50-100-100 is the rough partition breakdown. They only need the two large drives (document data drive and PoS data drive).
They aren't excited about a cloud service. They want something small, no monthly charge and on site. They aren't worried about "acts of god" disasters. If they were to use a cloud service, they'd probably want something really inexpensive and low key, like quarterly backups. Sid, you mentioned Crashplan. I checked it out, looks like that might be viable for their needs (pricewise). Was it easy to setup? Was there a size constraint?
Apparently they have Nova Backup running to backup one of their random computers and some of the PoS data. So I may just be able to build a NAS and have it backup to that. Any thoughts on that?
In any case, I really appreciate all your input, we were up till 3:30am working on recovering data. Cryptolocker is a hater.

We are still in the weird thought process of buying new machines every three years (how much more power does word 2013 need than 2010?) Seems a bit inefficient when you could just pop an SSD in and resolve the most office tangible issues with computer speed. Oh well.
