I have been running windows server 2012 R2, but using it only as basic backup for my files. I was wondering if it is overkill to keep ws2012 and switch to something simpler, resource friendly?

Of course it is supported and will be officially for about another 4 years.

Is WHS2011 even supported by MS anymore?

 

I was looking for a free-ish solution. :)

$400 to $40 is kind of free-ish for what you get.

I got WS2012 for free through school. 

WS2011 is C$100+ on amazon.

If you got WS2012r2 for free, then keep using it. You could even enable the Essentials Experience to have the ability to do Bare Metal backups of your client PCs.

How are you going to beat free?  What are you using to backup files?  2012R2 has no mechanism to backup (pull) files from clients, unless you are running scripts.
