I tried to look on google if this was the right section of stack exchange by searching "stack exchange windows backup" and all links were redirecting here, so I'm sorry if this is the wrong section of the site.
Basically I have:
-My home desktop pc which connects to the internet through a wifi modem and has a 500gb main hard disk and a 1tb extra hd
-a job laptop and some
-other android devices around all connecting to the home router.
What I need is:
-Crypt my work laptop hard drive. -Make an uncrypted backup of it (full windows image and maybe an extra user data only backup) and possibly make it incremental (don't know how to say, but beying able to update it and not make a new backup everytime.
So I started reading and documenting myself and I found out this might be the right solution, but I need revisions and advices.
Using Truecrypt to make a full drive encryption, that from what I understood, it gets decrypted only when you log on in windows to actually use the pc.
Make a backup copy using windows native tool (I have windows, I would like to use the backup tool windows offers) and save the backup on the home desktop pc external 1TB drive.
Now I'm a bit stuck on the best way to set up the whole thing.
Moreover I tried to share the big 1TB hard drive on the workgroup I've created but when I try to make a system image windows doesn't detect it as a drive...
What's the right way to share my home drive? I thought about making a workgroup in windows and connecting also my laptop to it. Then share the hard drive and allow access to it only to my main laptop username.
Can it work? What I miss?
Thanks for any help
