Backup server.

  gengiscant 17:52 20 Aug 2009

I was given a oldish PC and was wondering if I could make use of it as a backup server.
If this is possible,what do I need?
I would like to back photos,music,films,video and documents from at least 3 other PC's all running XP.
If this could be automatic even better,by that I mean if I add a document,film,mp3 etc the server would be updated as well.

Your pc would have to be networked with the others and on the same workgroup. The backup software you use can be pointed to back up on the 'server'. To do it automatically you are probably talking of a very expensive backup prog designed for commercial use.
