    Software for Local Backup with UnMapped Network Drives

    So first off, sorry, I saw quite a few other threads on backup software, but I wasn't able to find anyone I needed. Sorry for adding another one. The critical feature that I'm looking for is the ability to do incremental backups to a drive on another machine on the same network, but WITHOUT...

    One big home server or several small ones?

    Background: I have a media server that's been offline for a while. It has several disks between 1TB-3TB (JBOD) and room to add more. I built it to simply store all my CD, DVD and BrD rips. I played the files on an HTPC so transcoding wasn't an issue - but I retired the HTPC some time ago and I...

    What's my best backup configuration?

    Thanks to some great help on STH, my home server is taking shape. I'd value your tuppences on how I should configure backups for a _reasonable_ degree of protection. I'm planning on using crashplan (free edition) for the back ups. For most of my media, the backup is essentially a clone of the...

    Windows Backups, efficiently moving VHDs

    OK... so all of the windows machines in the house back up to their own little CIFS share on my file server (linux), and then get shunted off to airgapville. This causes a problem with system images, the VHDs of which are frequently huge single files. Tools like rsync are meant to be able to do...
