    Backing up...

    Hi all,

    Wondered if someone can help!

    I've been using Cobian for backing up my user profiles and our network share, this morning for some reason Cobian will not under any circumstance backup to the location it's been previously backing up to, I've tried changing all the options etc and nothing is working I just get errors on the main page. It's only folders / files I want to backup to a network drive.

    So Cobian isn't working and I have no backups for the past week, What do you use to backup files / folders ?

    What I really want is something that will backup to a network drive, as files / folders so I can browse / search through if someone looses something!

    Ideally I need something free - I'm temporarily using FBackup but it backs up to zip, not easy to search through!

    Any ideas anyone ?

    You could enable volume shadow copies and change the destination to an alternative drive that has been mapped and have it running once or twice a day depending on storage requirments.
