the network setup is simple. one computer is a dedicated computer only meant for backups. the server is running xp pro and hosting a shared folder. it's very simple, no passwords, single workgroup, etc what i need is for the backup computer to grab all the shared files off of the server and drop them onto an external hard drive (might replace this with a removeable harddrive caddy) the client wants something that allows them to turn on the external (or already have the caddy locked and loaded) and then all they have to do is double click on an icon and it will grab the files off of the share and place them on the hard drive (i'll have to decide wether incremental/differential) ideas on a program? i'd like to not use windows backup, i don't trust it also, looking for ideas on an internal removeable hard drive caddy that will allow them to pull out the hard drive at the end of the day and take it with them.
