    Online Backup Options for a LOT of Data


    Before I pull the trigger and start backing up, I wanted to double check. I use Synology SHR. So, when a drive goes bad, and I need to recover, I can't just restore the G: drive or whatever....since it's all combined into E: (which I like). That and because BackBlaze doesn't support NAS is why I am not using it. So, my question is this.... Which would you pick, not considering cost as a factor on any of them (because I already own licenses for CloudBerry and GoodSync) for someone backing up many TBs.


    G Suite + Good Sync
    G Suite + CloudBerry
    CrashPlan
    Or something else.


    Speed of uploading and downloading is a factor.


    TIA!

    :)

    issue with backup options Windows 10

    Hi David,

    I will certainly help with the issue you are facing with backup option.

    To assist you better, kindly provide the information:


    • How exactly are you trying to perform back up? Is it from the Backup and Restore (Windows 7) or File History?

    • Which drive have you selected to back up? Is it an external drive or a network drive or a local drive of the system?

    • When you say 'only allows me to do another backup with the same options', which options are you referring to?

    • Are you unable to select a different drive for a backup from the backup destination list?
    If you are using a Backup and Restore (Windows 7) option then, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Type backup and restore in the search bar and press enter.

    • Click on setup backup option.

    • Click on refresh button to check if the drives are visible in the
      backup destination list.

    • Choose the drive which you want to back up and click on
      next.
    If you are trying to use file history I suggest you to un-plug it and restart your computer. Re-plug the external drive and check if the file history options are available.

    Please get back to us with the information to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    [WPSL] Backup app data

    Hi All,

    I have a Windows Phone 8.1 Silverlight app in the store for quite some time now. I recently noticed that the automatic backup for my app doesn't work.

    • The app is listed in my phones (W10M) backup options and automatic backup is enabled
    • Disable automatic backup is not checked in the WMAppManifest.xml
    • Setting "Windows can include this product’s data in automatic backups to OneDrive." in the Dev Center is checked
    • All of the apps data is written to Windows.Storage.ApplicationData.Current.LocalFolder
    • Using ISETool I'm able to get all the data
    What am I possibly missing here?

    Note: This question was posted in the MSDN forums before but MSFT suggested to post this here:

    Regards,

    Stephan

    Online Backup Options for a LOT of Data

    Using network hard drive for backup

    It depends what sort of backup you want to do. If you're happy just backing up regular files, then there are a bazillion (really, that many!) different bits of freeware to do that. There is a good list here:

    Download Back Up Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks

    and pretty much all of them can do network backups. Some even have fancy options like encryption. Really, the most useful thing is just being able to schedule them and know they ran OK.

    You may also want to make a system image backup too, and you'll find that software in the very same list.

    I don't have Windows 8 as yet, so I'm afraid I can't suggest any for that platform. Personally, I use Clonezilla for image backups.
