Backups can be straightforward file and folder copies, or encrypted
Irritating up-sell opportunity
Backup isn't fast, but at least it's a background task
And you're done
Recovery is a 'select then restore' process
erm, shouldnt the stuff stored on the network drive be covered by a backup system on the server, as opposed to relying on the collection of clients personal backups to recover a DR situation???
I find memeo and a mirrored NAS as a rather efficent backup for my home laptops, seamless incremental backups as soon as they connect to the network, no plugging in, no worries
This is what happens with Time Machine on my Macbook. I plug it into a powered hub at home, which has my backup drive and CDJs hooked up to it. It backs itself up silently in the background- a fact that I have blessed on a few occasions.
Surely the network drives would be backed up in a more robust fashion than this?
I've been evaluating this as an option for notebook users and have found that the software doesn't work for data that is stored on a network drive. The policy makes the docs folder appear local but they are actually stored on a network drive.
Anyway the software just states "error" not backed up for each actual network file.
These mini USB flash things look like good devices to use for Windows Readyboost in a laptop. Just depends whether the speed is any good.
