Hi,

I have backup exec 2012 and want to backup to a Buffalo 1TB NAS box either by USB or network.

Can anyone recommend one that will work ok and fairly quickly.

Any preference to network or USB backup?

do you use that as a USB backup or network?

Any particular 1TB model you would recommend?

If you have a gigabit network, you'll probably see faster backups over the network.
If you have 10/100 network, your USB will probably be faster.
