Backup utilities

  1. Can anyone suggest what they would do for a small office for backup. Less then ten computers total, ran off of one server. I have read about offsite backup plans from companies like backup.com or in house backup using one touch hard drives or even dvds. What would you guys recommend? It is for a law firm, so some things are quite important but it is family owned so money is somewhat of an issue and there is no technical staff so it would need to be simple enough for your average computer user.

    A professional solution to backup several PCs or even an office network is Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation.
    This software gives you many opportunities, like backup to a virtual server or FTP, managing backup/restore tasks remotely on other computers and more.

    I use Acronis True Image too. It is a great utility... Much more than just a backup utility

    It says you can backup to a hard drive, remote site or a dvd. What one do you guys think is best but also easiest to automate for a non technical user.

    I would back up it to the external hard drive.It is the most reliable solution i think.
