We have a Windows 2008 server that has an unlimited backup agreement. In the past Windows 7 users had used folder redirection to have their files stored on the server would be part of the backup, but this weekend we have disabled folder redirection (it caused problems overall and now we have a lot more laptop / remote workers)
Therefore we need another way of copying the files to the server, so they can be backed up. My current thoughts to approaching this is creating a folder on the server for each user to where there files can be copied to and using a backup programmes on the client PC’s.
I’m currently thinking
Backup4 All (windows only)
Both of which would be installed on the clients to back up to the main server. Note we are now introducing some Mac clients into the network.
But just checking if others have a different opinion on a good way to approach achieve this backup. I’m open to any methods.
