SimpleTech HD & ArcSoft Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a Simpletech 250 GB USB to Add to my server and it cam with Arcsoft Backup.

    I am not adding my 250USB to the Server as additional space, I would prefer to backup my public folders & shares created with WHS to this drive... Has anyone used Arcsoft on WHS?

  • While you can try it, you will probably not have much luck with Arcsoft. Because of the way Windows Home Server stores only tombstones on the D: partition, there are no traditional backup tools (ArcSoft, NTBackup, Backup Exec, etc.) that Microsoft knows of that can back up your shares.

    Your best bet will be to use a file copying tool like robocopy to "sweep" your shares to your external drive.
