I can't get either of these 2 backup programs to work. I'm connected to a domain in the office. I have the nas hooked up and has a static ip. I have the drives mapped to each computer. The mapped drives do have passwords one for one group the other for another group. if I go in to the my network I can see the nas I put in the password and hit remeber user. I just can't get any backup program to work. any suggestions. The easus todo backup says a password is required but no place to put a password. cobian just says failed to create but there is not an option to put a password in there. Any suggestions, Any other free backup programs I could use I just need my docs, favorites backed up. Thank You

if you are willing to spend some money on this, i can suggest you Acronis Enterprise
It saves the username and password or the mapped drives and can be scheduled as hourly daily monthly or annual backups
Incremental or full backups option is there as well
I wont trust free applications for backups etc

I like CrashPlan...

It has a PC to PC backup that works well over LAN or WAN with an option to store to the cloud.
