Hi all,

We are currently looking at a solution for backing up files on laptops
to a server in a small office (10 users).

I was looking at rsync as a solution. Here is my suggested solution:

Install rsync on network server - this is Windows 2000 :-(
Share the root of C:\ on laptops
Schedule rsync to periodically mount to laptops share ove SMB (if they
can be found) and running an incremental backup

I would welcome comments on this. Thanks!
