Backup Bonus

For years, I've believed that automatic backup of LAN clients is a must-have for any small LAN, and Snap apparently thinks so, too. But instead of just thinking, Snap actually addresses this need by including a fully-functional copy of PowerQuest's DataKeeper that can be installed on every machine on your LAN. DataKeeper is a Windows-based application that can back up selected drives and folders to the 1100, then be switched to a mode where it monitors the selected folders and drives for changes. When a change is detected, it quickly copies the changed file to the selected backup device. Of course, file restore is also supported.

I installed DataKeeper at the same time that I put the 1100 into service and have been letting it automatically keep my main machine backed up for about a week now. I haven't noticed any slowdown in system operation, application hang, or other problems, and really appreciate the fact that I don't have to think twice about backup. The only problem I had was figuring out that I needed to shut off the 1100 after I powered down my computer for the night, or Datakeeper would hang up the shutdown process, waiting to complete its final backup of the day.
