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
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
I was using Exchange Server for communication to our business partners, clients and other but unfortunately it was corrupted by some type of failure and in this way, I lost all my data. Anyone can help me out in recovering my all data.
OK so here it goes:I have Virtual PC installed with two machines: 1 server 2008 , and one Vista.I set them up to have static IPs from on the same sub network(192.168.0.xxx), also I gave them the same domain (don't know how hat helps ..but i did it.If I ping each other they respond OK. Now what I need is for the serve 2008 Machine to provide to the vista client some services( just for test..nothing fancy):-i need to configure a domain( not sure if already did that-i need to configure active directory( to have 1 admin account , 1 user, 1 computer, 1 server)- i need to have a webhost on the server so that the client can go to iexplorer and access a simple web page- i need to have a ftp ( I installed FTP for win server 2008 but not sure I configured ok) with 1 file to be accessed from the client.- i need to have an exchange server with 2 mail accounts.- and last I need to be able to access the server remotely from the client. I am pretty sure some of the stuff is really easy( still I do not know how:D) and that some of the stuff is tricky .Thank you for your answers,Theo
