MIgrating from Windows Server Exchange 2016 to 2019 should I use W10

I'm thinking of migrating from WSE 2016 to WSE 2020. WSE is now showing its age, the updates seem to take forever. I have a simple question.... First my setup.  It's a simple home network of 5 desktop PC's and one WSE server that traps nightly backups and stores a large quantity of movies and pictures. I see WSE2020 no longer does backups.   I'm considering installing standard W10 and using Acronis for backups. 

The pictures/movies would be streamed from this dedicated W10 "server" just like WSE2016.  That's all I want/need. Am I missing something in not buying an (expensive) WSE2020 upgrade

There is no such thing as WSE2020. The only version available is WSE 2019. At this site and board, we are businesses and we do not use Windows 10 as a server. If you want to set up a peer-to-peer network you find better information elsewhere. Or maybe a NAS is a better idea for you.
