    I'm looking for a backup solution that will do the following:

    Scenario is a small office - one desktop, two laptops, all networked (all Windows XP):

    1) Laptops must be backed up on to the desktop across network (i.e. using UNC path (server name/IP address)), not mounted drive
    2) Backup to be initiated from desktop only - so software only installed on desktop
    3) Need backup of "My Documents", User login profile files (Documents and Settings\<user_name>) and Outlook PST files
    4) Must be able to handle locked files (i.e. files that are in use by other programs) across a network
    5) Must be able to run unattended and in silent mode (i.e no dialog boxes will pop up).

    Can Acronis True Image do all this? if so which product do I need? Home/Workstation etc..?
    Thanks.

    I'm not 100% sure, but this sounds like a Workstation 9.1 scenario.

    *bump*... can anyone tell me what I need? I like the sound of the product, but the website doesn't seem to answer the questions I have... (unless I've missed something..!)

    Hello jhurrell,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Remote Workstation Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Please note that as bodgy suggested you can use Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation in order to perform these tasks.

    Using Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation you will be able to back up the local computer and also using Acronis True Image Agent installed on the remote computer back up the system on that computer.

    You will be able to create an image archive of the entire disk(s)/partition(s) (on local or remote computer), which includes the operating system, registry, drivers, software applications and data files, as well as system areas hidden from the user. Also Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation allows you to back up only certain data (the current project, for example) using file(s)/folder(s) backup.

    We recommend you to download and install the free trial version of Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation to see how the software works on your computer.

    You can find the detailed instructions on how to use Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation in the respective User's Guide.
