My supervisor would like to put together a network backup solution for a small lab (about 15 people give or take). We have people using macs and pcs (running both win xp and vista) as well as a linux nas which holds our database. We are looking for a way to backup data from all of the workstations on the network, preferably automatically upon startup or login to the network. Ideally there will be a single solution for all platforms and the program will run from the server and we will not need to load it o nto the individual computers. Any feedback would be great. Cheers
