Backup Software

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am looking for backup software and was wondering if anyone could help me. My home network currently includes:

Server (http, ftp, sql e.t.c.) – Windows 7

Desktop ( Gaming, Programming e.t.c ) – Windows 8

2 Laptops ( Surfing the net e.t.c. ) – Windows 7

What I would like to do is have the backup software installed on the server and have certain folders / files from the other computers backed up to the server automatically each day or week, without any user interaction. I do not need the whole system backed up, just certain files / folders, perhaps SQL databases?

I have already tried Windows Home Server 2011 and tried the backup feature, although it did not work as the backup kept failing, so I am looking for another option.

Can anyone tell me what my best software option would be for this setup?

If I have missed any information out, please let me know and I will fill in the blanks.

Thanks

**Edit: Someone just recommended EaseUS Todo Backup to me, does anyone have any experience with this, is it any good? **

I use Acronic True Home Image which is a full featured back-up software that might do what you want to do? They have a Free 30 day trial download at their website, if you want to give their software a try.
