Hi,

Im after a good free backup program, which can backup folders on the computer as well as folders on other computers through the network.

I tried using Drive XML, but it does not allow me to select my mapped network drives.

Any recomendations?

Cheers
Adrian

Cobian backup lets you backup from / to network drives. It's free too. Check out:

I like Cobian too, but the huge amount of options make it a bit over-complex IMHO, and I still don't quite understand the backup scheduling and automatic deleting features. But it's the best free backup utility out there.

Heard about Cobian not to long ago from you guys and had a chance today to move a client from using Veritas Backup Exec 4.5a (Windows 2000) which finally stopped working, over to Cobian. So far so good, I will have to read up more on fine-tuning it.
