Okay, recently I had a major scare and thought that I lost everything on my computer... So, now I am going to buy an automated backup device.
I have read numerous posts and spoken to Buffalo tech about their linkstation wireless system. Totally confused which way to go....
For each system, I would like to use software such as Norton Ghost (never used it but ordered version 10.0 today for FAR) to make a complete backup (mirror or image) about once a month. Then, I would like to use another piece of software to make daily incremental backups for just the data only....
I have 1 desktop (60GB HD) which is hard wired to router...
I have 1 laptop (40GB HD) which is wireless.
Buy 2 external USB 2.0 HD for each system
Downside: Double Cost and Double Setup
Cost around $100 per device x 2 = $200
Buy Buffalo Linkstation 250GB and run wireless backup and setup only once.
Downside: Slows up the internet connection and may take longer to backup.
Cost around $180-200
This is new to me but I have no problem spending the $$$. I just want
to do it right the first time.
Please take the time to give me some advice.
