Does anybody know of any software which will backup pre-set folders from one pc and save them to another pc on a network.

What is must be able to do:

Backup the pre-defined folders in incremental files onto the other hard drive over a network. i.e We need about 30 days of backups before it starts again. In much the same way as tape backup software works only to a hard drive.

Drive Image makes a complete backup of your hard drive. It's pretty fast too.

You'll be hard up to find better than Second Copy for your purpose.

Or you could just write a batch file using xcopy.  Unless you need data compression that's the best no cost solution.

Thanks for your comments...
Secondcopy 2000 wont realy do what is required without making 30 profiles!! then you have the problem of finding the last backup files when needed...

Basicly - what can be done with secondcopy can be done with "task Scheduler" via using xcopy via a batch but what we are after is a dedicated solution - like tape backup software which will work with harddrives!!

In Windows 9x you can use xcopy32 to copy the data

to copy an entire hard drive, do:
c:
cd\
xcopy32 *.* \\netpc /h/e/r/c/k

The \\netpc is whatever network folder you want to put it to, you can include foldernames also like \\netpc\backups\today\whatever

the /h/e/r/c/k flags tell xcopy32 to keep going if it hits an error, and to backup folders recursively, and other stuff, that I'm not too sure on, but it works great for our office.

If you need to do compressions, I recommend PKzip.  You can compress all folders that you need into a single file and then copy that file through the network using a simple copy command.
