I am currently trying to figure out what's the best way to backup several PCs (about 5 computers each with Windows 7) from my family.
As I want the same solution for all Computer - I set up my old computer (Windows 7) and added some hard drives and there should now be enough space to backup the data of everyone from my family via the network. (Lets call this computer "Server")
But now I am wondering whats the best way to do this? What I do not want:
- I do not want to start the Server each time manually when a computer tries to backup. (I thought about using WakeOnLan.. but I do not know if this is a good idea)
- I do not want the Server to run permanently
- I do not want to make the backups manually they should backup about every week automatically.
So which Software on the Computers / or the "Server" would you recommend?
Or would you eve recommend me to use Linux on the Server? If so, which Software would you use then?
