Server to Server (NAS) Backup Solution

Hello EE!!

I'm looking for some suggestions to backup an exsiting Win2K File server to some other server or NAS device.  I'm only lookign to backup the shared data/home directories on the Win2k server not the entire drive. Total size is around 60GB.

Is it possible to run some kind of scheduled scripting or backup utility that can copy a series of directories from one server share to another server share or NAS? I've seen this under AIX where a nighlty backup concludes on some AIX server then a script kicks off and copies a series of directories to another server/NAS device located on the same subnet.

Try a Snap Server with Snap edr software

It's job based and scheduled/automated, I have worked with few companies with that system and it's very stable and reliable.

Check: www.snapserver.com or www.adaptec.com

Is there any way to accomplish this without the purchase of another NAS/Server? The budget is a bit tight. Is there a utility out there that allows a scheduled data backup from one server share to another?

Alternatively you could use some kind of sync like

Think the Copy Commander PRO could do the job

I would buy an small NAS device to contain the backups. Cleaner and safe way to keep a second copy of your files
