    I have 2 computer connected to my network one being my laptop. I would like to back up the harddrive on my laptop to a drive on my desktop. What would be the best way to do this.

    Thanks!

    I have a similar setup. I bought TI 8 Corporate Workstation Edition as it allows remote imaging. My desktop is my "image server", and I installed the Acronis remote agent on my laptop. I can then image my laptop remotely to my desktop and restore it in the same fashion. This is one way to do it. I can either use my desktop to "pull" the image from the laptop, or I can boot from the CD on the laptop and map a drive on my desktop to store the image on.

    @Ueler - No problem. Create a folder on your desktop PC, right-click and choose "Sharing...". Allow the remote computer (your laptop) to modify/write on the folder.

    On the laptop, when creating the image, navigate down to "Computers near me...", select the desktop folder, and of you go!

    I have three computers as well (2 pc/1 mac)... My notebook is the workhorse.. I save from the notebook to the desktop. I have the desktop as a network drive (shows in "My Computer" like a hard drive). I simply do the backups and save to the network drive, which is my desktop. No need for a corporate edition... unless it would make the network speed faster, which I doubt.
