Can You Use Sharepoint to Backup a User's Data?

    Pergunta

  • We have a lot of users in the field that never make it back to the home office to back up on our server here. We also would like something a little more secure (and more difficult to lose) than flash drives.

    Is it possible to set up a script that will back up a folder on a user's machine (ie. My Documents) to a location on a Sharepoint site (ie. a special document library)?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Yes, that's doable. Using the webdav folder option (open folder in Windows explorer) you can map a drive to their library and then use a simple script to copy it.

    Be careful though, you may quickly run out of space on your server. I recommend at least another site collection with it's own DB for this setup.

    Have you considered a cloud app like SugarSync

  • Thanks so much! I'll have a look at that and at SugarSync too. I'll post again after we implement something in case anyone's interested.

    Peace

  • In the end, it looks like we're going to buy a server and use GoodSync for the remote backups. Thanks anyway for the advice, David! :)
