Hello Experts,

here's the scenario. i want to backup 1.5TB of data remotely. was thinking i can use Cobian and choose either incremental or differential. A full backup would be created first by nature of cobian operation then successive backups will be incremental files only.

Question has anyone ever tried this?  To run the first backup job locally(full) then take the server offsite, turning on ftp server on it.  From the other end run cobian and change the backup profile to instead of looking for the local network path, to look now for the ftp path. once it connects via ftp it will backup the incremental files because it finds the correct bit against the original backup job?

was wondering if anyone has done it already as it's quite a lot of background work to try first and then propose to client.

regards and thanks

I never used Cobian backup, 8 clients of mine used Mozy pro. Mozy is simple to setup. The servers that you plan to use are they MIcrosoft,Linux,Unix,...?

sorry david,

i have 1.5TB+. mozy pro doesn't even have pricing at that level. Plus it's $279/month. with my own ftp server i only pay for the internet connection and static ip.
