Scheduled Backups

Posted on 2012-08-22

I want to create backups on a schedule I create to a specified folder on my system (which is actually my folder).  I tried to use the ntbackup utility but it doesn't appear to allow me to dictate destination.  Any help would be much appreciated.  I am using Windows XP.

    If you are looking for a good Free software then go for Paragon Backup and Recovery

    If you are looking for a professional software which not not very expensive as well, then go for Acronis True Image

    I really like but if you are saying these solutions allow scheduling backups and easily moving them to a remote site then I am interested.   Please confirm this prior to me acting on it.

    yes it would do it
    download the trial version
    and test it yourself
    its better to mount the remote drive to your machine as a local drive
    and schedule the backups to be uploaded directly to the attached drive
