Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, thoughts?


Recommended Posts

Like many of you, I've relied on Microsoft Windows based home server products for 7 or 8 years now. And I still like it, but there have been bumps in the road lately, even with R2.

 

So I recently took notice of this:

It does bare metal restores, and interesting that they're "paying" superstar beta testers with 6 Surface Pro 3 tablets.

 

Any of you tried this yet?  As for me, still awaiting my beta approval/download instructions.

 

An excerpt from their announcement here:

Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE is a product that allows you to backup your Windows-based computers to an internal or external hard drive, a NAS share or a Veeam Backup Repository. It writes the backups in VBK format, which is the same format as Veeam Backup & Replication.

I just put this in shownotes for next week.  I signed up for Veeam but I haven't been able to find the actual beta download!

Interesting Tinkerguy. I assume you're looking at this as a potential replacement for WHS*?

 

 

*I'm using WHS as a general term for any of the MS products that include the WHS style client backup feature.

We are a distributor of Veeam, one of my engineers worked under NDA on this.

That's about all I can say for now.

He did smile when I asked about it.

I wouldn't trust my data to a Beta :mellow: I'd choose Acronis TI 2014 over Paragon Backup & Recovery 15 Home. Acronis seems to be much more user friendly and it has saved me more times than I can count.

I haven't used Paragon, but I sure don't find Acronis user friendly in any sense of the world. If Paragon is worse that's pretty abysmal.
