"Imaging disaster recovery tool that just works!"
Easy to use.
No install required.
Uses own snapshot tech or VSS.
Backs Windows and Linux.
Can browse images (sna file) very easily so can copy and paste files back if required.
Restore to VM
No logs are created.
I have been testing Drive Snapshot for a few weeks now and I am rolling this out to backup a few servers and workstations.
Very easy to use and the command line switches are a doddle to use in a batch file.
Create a batch file and then schedule it using Windows scheduler and you have yourself a very fast and stable disaster recovery system.
Can back up to USB drives which is what I do and then take them off site.
Drive Snapshot compresses the images on the fly so unlike Windows own NT Backup where the bkf files are not compressed, Drive Snapshot creates images that can be up to 50% smaller than the data being backed up. Brilliant.
It also has its own snapshot texhnology that freezes files at point of starting backup so open files can continue to be used i.e.SQL etc. Also automatically uses VSS if required i.e. for Exchange.
Considering this product does pretty much what Acronis and Symantic do, Drive Snapshot well underated and I would urge you to consider this as an alternative to the main stream disaster recovery software.
