Which backup app for Gen8 + Win 10

Recommended Posts

no, I'd have to look at their stuff pretty carefully to see the implications of those techniques on recovery time for full and partial restorations. I will probably do that exercise at some time in the future like when I ditch Essentials.

Not good results sadly. Setting up an account was a nightmare and required Sales manual intervention, then it would not let me update my account, which then prevents me from raising a tech support case. Support chat line acknowledges problems but cannot get a fix after a week.

 

The agent loaded, but would not let me setup alerts and it cannot see my server to set up my first backup or let me setup alerts.

 

I did have to register separately on their Forum and saw that Agent for Windows has problems with W10 build 2004 (inc restore media not working) and a no fix date is quoted yet. Maybe this is the problem I see? Not a good first experience.

 

Finally, the attractive reverse incremental backup scheme is not available in Agent for Windows (other features too) only in Backup & Replication, so as far as I can see, there are no advantages over Acronis but I will wait to see if things get fixed before I abandon Veeam

If you are looking for a more traditional backup and recovery, Paragon Community Edition is still free:

Thanks Neal, I have used Paragon Hard Disk Manager for many years (which includes backup) and it was the first backup product I used. Originally it had a simple proprietary restore disk that worked fine, but then they moved to Win PE in later versions and even with their limited tech support, I was unable to get it working so that was when I moved to WHS2011.

I have the latest V17 HDM and just tried to create a WinPE recovery disk and still could not get it to work, again with a lot of communication with tech support. The incremental backup process is basically the same as Acronis anyway
