Workgroup Backup

By Serviceware Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Backing up your home PC is important; backing up your office workgroup is essential. Workgroup Backup is specially designed to back up files from several computers onto a networked server. You can set the backup frequency and the number of versions you want to store. This is a fairly basic program, which lacks such common features as the ability to pack files or secure them with a password. Typically for freeware, Workgroup Backup suffers from a shoddy interface and a meager help file. To make up for the lack of documentation, the program dialogs are cluttered with instructions--a mixed blessing at best. Also, though Workgroup Backup is designed for network use, it doesn't let you browse networked computers. It's not a terrible choice for a small office on a tight budget, but some will prefer to use more polished software for this mission-critical task.

Developer's Description

Workgroup Backup sits in the system tray and runs a backup in idle time. It can combine with all other computers on the network to make a backup for the network and server. It backs up over networks and network paths. It can make a new backup set each day and limit the number or remove sets if the space left gets low. All the computers on the network can get together to remove the oldest backup set.
