Backup across network-(a question)



Ok here's the deal, I have a snap server appliance, the only connection it has is a 10/100 network... I also have a home built file server (it will be replacing the snap) I want to copy the entire contents from the snap to the new fileserver including OPEN files, so I have to be able to copy across a very busy network... anyone have a good freeware suggestion for software to do this copy, so far I have tried;

Windows commander ( syncronize dir feature) it crashes with a OUT OF MEMORY error.. which I know is not the case since I have 1 gig of rd400 in this fileserver...

Windows Copy Feature (very very slow)

and the latest try is something called "Hands Off Backup" it's only been running an hour so far, but I'm open and searching for anything that works....

I would recommend that you use the Backup utility in Windows first to make everything into ONE file. Then copy that file over and use the Backup utility to uncompress them. It takes awhile to backup all the files, but in the long run it will copy faster because it is ONE file and not thousands.


Turn on ftp on the snap server
Create an ftpuser on the snap server
On the new fileserver use an ftp client and log into the snap server, then transfer the files.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
