Hey there, I am in need of some help.
So my wife and I had a baby this year, and ever since she has been hounding me about getting her setup to backup her pictures on the cloud. I'm pretty sure she is insisting on cloud storage as it's a new term, and everyone is doing it. So here I am to seek some help from you guys who know better than me.
Here is what we currently have.
1 desktop running windows 8
2 laptops running windows 8
these are all networked together, so I have her copying the photos and things that she wants to protect onto the HD on the desktop so that they can't just disappear if something happens to her laptop.
I told her I would look into a NAS solution, so that we would have our own personal cloud, but i'm seeing horrible reviews on things in the low price range I was hoping to spend. Same thing with external HD's. I was starting to wonder if I should just add a much larger internal HD to my desktop.(currently 700gb). If I go that route, is there a backup software that is recommended so that we don't have to remember to copy things over? Thanks for the help, I'm just getting a little overwhelmed here and could use some help.
