So, having just acquired a NAS for my home network, I set about on the weekend getting the Windows 7 laptops backing up via the WiFi.
However, much to my disappointment, Microsoft have removed the "network backup" ability of Windows backup in Windows 7 Home Premium - I need to be running "Windows 7 Professional" for this. Not a smart decision, and presumably made entirely for marketing reasons and not for technical ones either!
So, need a better backup solution - and I thought, why not poll the community?
Can anyone recommend a decent backup package for Windows 7 Home Premium, that can backup to a network device, handles a decent backup schedule (i.e. weekly fulls and daily incrementals, for example), and preferably will retain old data for a month or so before deleting it from the backup device.
Something like TimeMachine would be ideal....
... and preferably low to no $$$, 'cause otherwise my Scottish Ancestry gets grumpy.
