Backup Software

I'm looking for cheap backup software for around under $100 for back up just data and documents for Windows 2003 server.
I also so like to have full backup and differential or incremental back up.

thank you

You can just use the built in NTBackup.

Hi HOPE-IT,

Norton Ghost is a great tool. Here's the link: http://www.symantec.com/business/products/sysreq.jsp?pcid=pcat_infrastruct_op&pvid=865_1

Also something like Acronis is great too. Here's the link: http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/products/ATIES/requirements.html

Ghost is not cheap for a server.  Neither is Acronis.

I agree - what's the problem with NTBackup - it works fine.

I can't think of anything in that price range that will do what you want then. HP RDX is a little pricey, but for what you are looking for will do the job.

That's all I can come up with within that price range.

I see what your trying to do now HOPE-IT, I was thinking of something else, I know that Norton Ghost and Acronis are not cheap however great tools though. The built in NTBackup I think will do just fine.

Hello,

I recommend Genie Backup Manager Server, it's user friendly and reliable backup software, it costs 100$ but they have 50% discount "Easter Offer" , 50$ is so cheap for server backup solution.

Hope this helps.

HOPE-IT,
The RDX will allow incremental backups as well as allow for bare metal recovery.
