Like Windows Server 2008 or Ubuntu Linux? You should use the standard OS tools and available utitities here, as far as possible.
And what exactly is the backup? Just a copy of all files in a certain folder (and subfolders)? Or one file in a proprietary format of the backup program?
Did you even consider using the commercial off-site backup services. They have programs that backup your data to a site somewhere on the internet. That's rather safe also.
I already have my office server going with a backup computer. I would like the backup computer(from the office) to automatically send the backup it has just made to my house computer (either daily or once every 2 days). But i don't know of any way to do this or of any software that would take care of this. I use acronis true image at the office. Any recommendations? The computer at home will just hold backups not use them. Any recommendations would be great!
