I have a nas with 500 gigs, and I want to backup to an external usb.
Acronis True Image Home 11 does both (incremental and network), I was just pointing out that I had not actually tried it in the Windows 7 RC XXXX environment.
NAS is something I have never tried even in an XP/Vista environment. The real test would be to try a NAS restore when booting to an Acronis Emergency Recovery cd. The ATI "HOME" version differs somewhat from the ATI workstation version with regards to network support (drivers
etc) so you might be wise to investigate further.
For a typical home setup the ATI Home 11 boot disk works fine. For more complex network access I created a UBCD4WIN (Bart PE) boot disk with the ATI Home 11 PE Plugin (actual plugin feature is on the ATI Home Install CD).
Why the need for a Bart PE plugin? The UBCD4WIN (Bart PE) cd incorporates the various network drivers included in a Windows XP SP2 (3?) boot CD. The ATI Home 11 boot disk may not have all of the latest drivers. Once a network connection is established and drive access shared/mapped by whatever means the Acronis backup/restore will function.
The latest ATI is ATI Home 2009. You can download a trial version here: Complete hard disk recovery solution, backup, drive copy, clone and image computer software
(the specs list network storage supportm but to me that is vague....
If you get a chance to test the NAS functionality please post the results!
