Help with a Backup Solution for Company Data
Posted on 2006-10-24
I'm in need of some assistance or suggestions for backing up data on the client machines. Here's a quick rundown of our setup.
We have 1 Dell server running SBS2003. (The Server contents are backed up nightly to tapes which are kept offsite and it runs a RAID5 SCSI for redundancy)
We have about 5 desktops that are always connected to the server.
We have around 15 laptops that come in and out of the office, at various times of the day, to connect and upload patient data to the server.
The users have no real personal data except for a couple things in "My Documents." The most critical documents are kept in a "Data" folder for the home health software we use.
Backups for the desktops are easy because they are always connected and I can set a daily schedule to have it Auto-Backup to their personal folder on the server at 5pm using the XP Backup utility.
Backups for the laptops are the main topic of concern because the nurses aren't always in at any specific time during the day. The backup would ideally be run after they finish with the program and run just before they log off to leave. Of course it shouldn't run or "ignore" the job/script if they're not logged on the domain and outside the office.
So what I need is either a suggestion for a solution to this backup problem or a windows script that would run everytime they log on/log off to the domain and backup "My Documents" and a "C:\Data" folder to their personal "\\Uses\<Username>" folder on the Server.
Thank you for the assistance.
