Cloud based backup vs Simple External Harddrives FAQ
Posted on 2010-09-18
I'm currenlty hired to support a small private school.
They have no backup practices implemented currently.
In their administration office they have 5 XP desktops (1 of them acting as the main file server for the rest of the desktops to access). These are the 5 we need to back up.
A Full backup would most likely be less that 50Gb. A lot of that is pictures/Publisher files and other MS Documents that are created and then archived.
Price and ease of use are our biggest hurdles.
What do you guys suggest? Is there VERY simple, inexpensive, external hard drive out there that will do incremental/full backups? Is the "Cloud" an option?
