Hi All,

I have been using Carbonite for a number of people - and its quite nice.

I however now have a user that needs to have regular incremental backups (versioning if you like) of files, maybe every 1 hour so that I can restore a particular file to any given point in time.

I dnot think carbonite will do this. Suggestions?

The file will be Word files, so I assume I should turn on autosave in word to a small niterval (like 10 min) else the file will remain in ram until she does a save?

Crashplan. It won't do a backup unless the file is modified but it will keep versions.

I use Crashplan for my home computers and it does exactly that. Then have some of my more sensitive files that I don't want going to Australia backed up to one of my collocated servers as you can do that for free through the Crashplan software.

here's what it looks like:
