data backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently added a windows 7 computer and external USB drive to my small LAN(4 winXP computers plus a maxtor network drive) and want to automate my data backup of all my data on the new USB attached drive to my windows 7 computer. The windows 7 tools backup tool can only schedule and backup any files/data on the windows 7 computer but not anything on my Maxtor network drive. Is there a way to include the Maxtor drive in the backup job? If not, is there software that can schedule and backup my windows 7 computer and Maxtor Network drive? My Maxtor network drive is used to store all my common data that is used by everyone on the network. I am willing to backup all my data weekly or perform daily incremental backups.  thanks in advance.
