I am currently researching a data rcovery solution for my company.  We are looking at 5 solutons:

Acronis
Symantec
FarStone
Paragon and
Novastor

I would like to know what you all think is the best solution for a network with about 20 clients, 1 server and usb external hard drives for storage.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Acronis and Paragon offer the cheaper solutions, and you can get an Eval to test on your hardware I think

Symantec BESR is not cheap, so it depends on how many machines youwnat to image, and whether you need hot or cold failover etc.

I would also look at virtualization.

I hope this helps !

I would recommend you to use Paragon software as I've successfully used it for years.
They're offering Drive Backup for backup and recovery solutions.
You can try to use its trial version first.
