Backup software


I have a server setup in my office with windows 2008. I am wanting to do daily sync'd backups of my work files on the server to an external NAS drive connected on the LAN.

Can anyone recommend good backup software to achieve this? I have just tried Acebit backup but the schedule doesnt work :(

You could use Rsync which can be installed and run on the host and sync to the NAS.

It is easy to setup and script and can be run from a scheduled task.

You can use robocopy and command line tool to do this schedule this as a daily job and you should be fine.But remember that robocopy can't copy the open files
