Found a neat looking network application today. Mirra is a network backup appliance that does a continuous backup, from wherever you are on the network to your Mirra drive.
It stores up to 8 previous versions of changes to a file. It does so continuously, and in the background so that you are always backing up. As a consultant at client sites often, my notebook computer is my lifeblood. This could save me from having to lug my 250 gb Maxtor OneTouch with me. According to the manual, the Mirra software queues up data changes (ie, backup information) when detached from the network and then sends those along once reconnected. Perhaps I’ll buy myself this for Christmas, or my Birthday; heck, Arbor day would probably be enough of an excuse. 🙂
