I just want to automaticly backup my drives. TI8 works in the background so it doesn't matter much if a backup takes 15 minutes extra. And restoring.... well there highspeed can make some diffrence but restores are done seldom. Hopefully never But when looking at backup offerings it's always systems like dual Xeon and highend drives. For my little network that's huge overkill. I'm thinking of using an old system that's just catching dust. Specs: AMD t-bird-900, 768MB PC133 ram, 16MB videocard. That's it. I have to buy other components like casing, PSU and ofcourse HDs. Is such a system adviseble on a 1Gbit LAN with (reasoneble) high-end PCs? Any other idea's? It has to be maintainace free so I guess tapes etc are not what I'm looking for.
