Hi all

I use a laptop and I want to backup my "user folders" (Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos etc) to a small PC that I am about to build to sit on the LAN to do this and be a printer / multifunction server.

I have looked at Acronis TrueImage but it is overkill. I don't need a disc image and I don't need recovery functionality, I just want to specify half a dozen folders and whenever my laptop is on the LAN the software make any changes (additions, deletions, edits) on the laptop happen on the backup PC. The amount of data is 150GBish.

Any suggestions? I'm happy to pay for something you recommend.

Thanks.

I use Memeo Autobackup - www.memeo.com - simple to use, relatively cheap and file-oriented rather than image-oriented.  I like the fact that there is an option to have standalone restore capabilities  (file restore does not require Autobackup to be installed - useful when you have to reinstall Windows from scratch).
