Looking for suggestions on a good and powerful Backup / Archive utility that has compression ability [.ZIP], or can be used with a ZIP utility.
Need to install on a few clients' small sized LANs [about 8 workstations max].
They are simple Peer-To-Peer networks [Win95], and each has a dedicated "File Server" machine that is used only to host a logged drive for workstations and archive important files [on a slave drive].
I installed PKZIP by PKware [common .zip utility], but it's not easy for them to figure out, or use it.
I do part time administration [if you could call it that
], which involves routine maintenance and manual archive / backup updates. This is once every few months.
Looking for a good utility that can be configured to save daily stuff at an off time, plus backup / update archives - all that good stuff!
and it needs to be something that a typical end user [non-geek] can work with, so I don't get those panic - emergency calls because something is too hard to understand.
By the way, it needs to be somewhat "Dummy Proof"
- to keep the tweekee gremlins from screwing up stuff
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
