Looking for LAN/WAN incremental backup software

I am hoping to kill two birds with one stone here.  If I could solve my primary issue, that would be great.  The secondary is just a bonus.

Primary Issue: I want to have a client that I can pick folders to archive and backup to a remote NAS.  Ideally this would be compressed and support block level updates.  In short, I want a local version of many online backup services like Mozy.

Secondary Issue: The above software would support Exchange / SQL Server 2005.

To date have not found much that can solve this problem.  The only solutions I have found come from vendors who charge by the GB to backup date to my own equipment.  Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated.


PS - This is a Windows Network, but I wouldn't be opposed to a Linux solution using Samba that pulls the data from the servers.

Rsync may work but is NAS dependent since it is client/ server.

I would suggest Double-take or similar, but it requires a separate server and does complete disaster recovery by failing over to your backup server.

Not cheap , but works nicely.

I hope this helps !

Have a look on trial version of Paragon Drive Backup 9.0 Server Edition: www.drive-backup.com
It creates sector level backup images to mapped resources and makes differential + incremental backup images to first sector block.

Thanks for the advice guys - Rsync is what I will probably do short term.

I think Drive Backup is exactly what I am looking for however.  Enterprise version does SQL Server & Exchange, bonus!
