  1. Best Linux Backup software

    Hi, I am new to the Linux environment and still learning but I have to say I love it! One thing I am not sure about is I have setup a computer running Linux mint. Now i want software that will serve as backup for another windows machine. The thing is i have tried using CloudBacko Pro (http://www.cloudbacko.com/) Backup Software but i just get confused although from what i have read it would be the perfect backup solution. I basically need the software to backup as much as possible meaning files and settings configs all of that. The…

    • I only want to make the back up for the previous month

      I only want to make the back up for the previous month otherwise the backups take up too much space. Deleting old backups takes too long about 3 mins per backup and I can't mass delete.

      • Online Backup or Hard Disk For Photo storage

        I was wondering if I could get a quick recommendation for a storing photos - at present I have copies sitting on two computers and one external hard drive.

        So I need to find a cost efficient way to backup my data. I heard CloudBacko Pro Cloud Backup(http://www.cloudbacko.com/) was good, but I wanted some suggestions. I was wondering if anyone had some good ideas/solutions?

        Cheers!

        • limit number of snapshots

          To control backup size, i think need create function (additional parameter) - number of snapshots

          • Rescue media builder error

            I tried to use rescue media builder (to build and ISO file) on three different computers (win 7 -32 bit, win-7 64 bit and win xp) and all of them show error message when starting to build media. After I confirm the file name of ISO file to be saved and click NEXT, an error shows up : "Error occurred while ..." Do you see the same issue or am I doing something wrong?

            • Several pairs of backup

              for example,
              1) source c: destination: d:\backup_of_c
              2) source d: destination: d:\backup_of_d
              3) ... and etc
              and add parameter - when start in first time (it's help to make backups in different time)
              imho, good idea... ;-)

              • how about actually making software that works

                make software that will backup a hard drive onto a backup disk drive, then have it where you can go on the program and pick a backup you want to recover to, and then have it so your software Time Machine will actually do that, instead of getting stuck in an endless loop of booting up to options screen over and over, over again

                • Add a more obvious place to report bugs

                  This seems like it's designed for features and suggestions not bugs. I mean who wants to cast votes for bugs? At any rate, I clicked on the language popup in the upper right hand corner (my says "English" and the app hung. After several minutes Windows 7 offered to kill it so I let it. Then when it restarts it doesn't resume the backup. It looks like it will about an hour from now but I would think there would be a way to restart the backup. I'm a brand new user so maybe I'm missing something.

                  • Start with Windows Option

                    Hello,

                    I have a question and a possible feature (option) request.
                    Whether or not TM starts on boot is tied to whether automatic back-up is on or off. I would like to do only manual back-ups but at the same time would like TM to start automatically when my system boots (so it will always be in the tray and ready for use). The question is have I missed something or is this currently not possible?
                    If this is indeed not possible, could an option be added so that when automatic back-up is turned off, I could still have TM…

                      • Backup even with no external drive connected

                        Yep, sounds insane. But that's what Apple Time Machine does on a laptop. When the Time Machine drive is not connected, Time Machine performs backup in an hidden folder, which is synced with the TM drive when connected, when you're back home or office.

                        Which means that you can recover files that have been accidentaly erased, provided they have been created for more than one hour.

                        Saved my day more than once.

                        • Laptop sleep mode causes error

                          When my laptop has been in sleep mode, ax64 often comes up with an error that it can not connect or enumerate backups that reside on the NAS. I assume that this is because the network and connections to the NAS need a few seconds to re-establish themselves and cause ax64 to hiccup. If I close ax64 and relaunch, the issue is no longer present. I am experiencing this on version 2.0.0.548 and have seen it on previous 2.x versions. It happens 99% of the time on my laptop as I leave it in a sleep mode usually when not…

                          • Add an "Advanced options check"

                            The program is fantastic!!! Similar to apple time machine. It is all I wish in windows.

                            I see other users wants more advanced options (specific time programations on days, more or less frequency backups, other folders, etc). I am informatic and I understand it. But do not forget the simplify program!!!

                            So

                            A "Show and modify advanced options" check is beautiful. With this unchecked box, all options are the 99% users agree.

                            If you check this option, it allow modify all advanced options.

                            If you uncheck the box, all returns to its default settings.

                            Thanks!!!

                            • Allow several destinations

                              I just bought Time Machine, which seems very interesting, and with a good -yet not totally polished- UI.

                              As I am paranoid about backup, I'd like to be able to switch from a NAS drive to others drives.

                              The NAS would be the main drive, connected as I soon as I am at home. But I'd like to perform a security backup every week on an external drive, kept in a secure location (in fact, 2 drives with a weekly rotation - only paranoid can survive in an IT world).

                                  • Compatibility between AX64 and StorageCraft ShadowProtect

                                    StorageCraft ShadowProtect is used by many users (both IT and home) because of its feature sets. Therefore, it would increase AX64 market base if it works with StorageCraft ShadowProtect.

                                    • Backup should detect changes in operating version, or service pack installations

                                      Backup should detect changes in operating version. I have my first copy on windows vista (kernel NT 6.0), then windows 7 (kernel 6.1), then windows 8 (kernel 6.2), but all incremental. You should detect kernel version changes, and force full backup if change detected, because incremental backup of windows actualizarion does not work!! I had to restore last windows vista backup.
                                      Perhaps, an interval to force full backup... "Full backup forced every x days/months.

                                        it i in the title, for example when I pause and stop the backup the 2 butons are grey. What to do to relaunch, a mouse over text may give this info.

                                        • Dynamic Disk Support

                                          I don't know if this is a bug or a missing feature, but on my system, AX64 doesn't see the Dynamic disk as a source disk. It does pop up as a possible destination however.
                                          In my case, the Dynamic disk is not spanned across several physical disks, but I do see that as a possibility (especially for the SSD's).

                                          (I'm to say Hi from David Pierron too :) )
