Title: windows 8.1, incremental file backup to a mapped network drive
Post by: travis_farmer on Sep 27, 2017, 10:59 pm
ok, i am looking for a way to backup my windows 8.1 laptop, incrementally, to a mapped network drive (on my server). I have scoured google, and was presented with many options, and i got a headache trying to figure out the best one. most of them are either cloud storage, or too expensive. then there is the risk of installing spyware, unknowingly. all i want to do is simple incremental backups.

so i turn to my fellow techies, and ask, what do you use, and trust?

cRWSync (https://www.itefix.net/content/cwrsync-licenseversion) or the built-in Robocopy (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733145(v=ws.11).aspx) usually do it for me.

You could try Personal-Backup (http://personal-backup.rathlev-home.de/index-e.html), which I give to customers looking for a free GUI tool.
