Small Business Backup Solution Needed
Posted on 2004-09-19
I have a problem here and I did a search on EE but didn't find anything that matched what I needed exactly - although I am sure something is there, but I dont know how to search properly.
I am doing some work for a small business and they need a new File Management System.
At the moment there are 4 PC's and 1 laptop.
The issues is the files, they are spread over the network which makes backing up very hard and a lot of the files are redundant (since they dont change since prev. backups).
The accounting information is on one PC, the client info and invoices are all on another PC etc...
He wants the laptop to have the client info and invoices - so when he takes it with him he has important info there too.
The way the business works - the client goes out to his clients with his laptop, they draw up documents etc...
He needs to sync. his laptop with the business network etc...
BUT the files on the network also update - so a simply copy/paste will not work...
He is willing to COMPLETELY restructure the network so as to have a better system.
The BEST Option would be a free one, although software which is worth it, will be happily purchased!
His business wouldn't exist without the computer systems and data.
So this is VITAL to his network.
Thanks in advance!
