Automatic File Back Up on a Network

  Kilty 08:39 17 Mar 2009

I have three PCs networked together and a 250gb external hard drive, which I would like to use to back up files off all 3 machines. Is it possible to setup a system so that this is done automatically at regular intervals?

Thanks in advance for any help given.

Provided all three computers have access to the external drive (i.e. it is connected to a PC that is always running and the drive is "shared", or it is an "NAS" drive), a synchronisation program such as "AllwaySync" click here should let you do what you want, including automatic synchronisation in the background.

Thanks mgmcc, that looks perfect for what I want. Will give it a try and see how I get on.

Thanks again.
