I'm looking for a backup solution for the various PCs at home; I'm open to free and/or purchasable software. I'm new to the whole backup scene so any information and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
My machines will be running XP (32-bit) and Vista (32-bit & 64-bit). Right now I have a mini-itx server running Vista with 4 x 1TB drives running in RAID5. Here are a few features I'm looking for (bold means necessary):
Full and incremental backups Stores various backup snapshots (maybe only done through full backups?) Stores previous versions of the files Some sort of compression mechanism Encryption and/or password protection on backup files/archives Automated/scheduled backups would be nice Ability to restore a particular file without doing a complete restore Full system and specific folder backups Specify to include/exclude certain filetypes Specify to include/exclude certain folders Can backup to shared folder on my server over the network
