  1. I want to install a home based server to hold my backups. I have discounted using a paid service like Dropbox or several other similar cloud services, because they are too expensive (example: Dropbox = 1$/GB per year.) I currently have 2x2TB external HDDs that I alternate for my Mac using Time Machine and then I keep all my media files on another 2TB external HDD backup to the last 2TB external HDD. They are all kept in the same place next to the computer and I am aware that in case of a fire or a burglary they all might disappear, so every time the house is empty I hide some of the HDDs. Not an elegant solution. There are 2 possibilities: First take the backup disks to another part of our (large) house where they will be hidden and no-where near the computer and then link them directly to the Mac. BUT HOW? long USB? Powerline RJ45? The HDDs of course do not have RJ45 sockets. Secondly use a home server like a WD cloud server hidden away as above. These are called NAS servers. Which ones are good but not ridiculously expensive (up to say 300$) using some of those 2TB HDDs in it or connected by USB? A completely off site server might be too slow. We live in the country and although the Internet connection is good I think it might be a problem. I'd appreciate ideas and even a short discussion. Henry
  2. I am looking to back up and possibly actively mirror a folder across multiple computers in a network. I have a test folder that will work for testing, but the files in this folder will be edited and saved on multiple computers in the same day a small garage fire in the spring destroy most everything that was active so in the network will have computers in the garage, shop, and house, along with a network drive in the house. test files will be from the electric sheep program, and on 2 computers and a network drive another computer or network drive needs to be set up as a time machine backup in case a file gets accidentally deleted or saved wrongfully. "C:ProgramDataElectricSheepcontent" "\WDMYCLOUDSmartWareElectric Sheep" "\FRED-505ElectricSheepContent" A 4th location can be kept for a time machine backup of which I also do not know how to do. Windows 7/8 are my primary OS's
  3. Question from a groovy reader: Hi Austin, I read your web page on backp/restore using M.S. backup as provided. I have this BIG doubt, though: If my Windows 7 does not boot due to failure or whatever, and I do have the backup image in a USB hard disk, how do I RESTORE the image back? Up to Windows XP I have been using Acronis, and that software can boot itself from a CD, so even one can restore to a new hard-disk. I have not bot Acronis because I read it has issues, possibly due to changes in Windows 7, so naturally I would like to use Microsoft backup, but am holding on answer to my questions. I hope you can afford some brief help just to avoid surprises. Thanks!
  4. Hi, Is there a simple way of copying the contents of my Blackberry (text messages in particular) on to a PC? There seem to be a number of paid-for programs, but I don't want to cough up for something and then find it was a waste of money. Thanks
  5. I have been using Sync Toy in echo mode which is supposed to sync all changes from the left folder to the right one. It seemed to be working well but I have found that some folders and files that I deleted in the left folder where not deleted from the right hand one. Can anyone recommend another backup software that will do what sync toy is supposed to do but do it properly and is easy to use. Please Help
  6. I have windows 7 with outlook 2010 and I always backup my outlook files folder containing the Outlook data file. Is this all I need to restore my outlook if anything went wrong with my laptop. I have hundreds of emails in different folders that I have set up, hundreds of contacts. I have dozens of email rules, calendar appointments and tasks and quicksteps. Are these all stored in the outlook data file or do I need to back up other files as well. Should I be exporting the calendar and contacts separately or is it ok to just back up the data file. I just want to make sure that I am backing up all the right stuff.
  7. When I am copying a folder to a backup location where a folder already exists with the same name, windows 7 always asks if I want to merge the folder "Yes" "No" There is no option to copy and replace the folder like you get with individual files. This means that the backup folder contains a copy of everything even old files that I have deleted and no longer need. I know I can delete or rename the old backup folder but this is a bit of a pain. Is it possible to copy and replace the whole folder like we used to be able to do with windows XP
