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?

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.
