XactCopy's Automatic Workstation Backup

A Boon to Network Managers

Nevada City, CA - When XactCopy was first introduced to the market earlier this year, the advantages to single workstation users became quickly obvious. The strategy uses dual hard drives and XactCopy software to create an exact duplicate of the system drive that can substitute within minutes in case of operating system or hard drive failures. XactCopy's unparalleled speed provides routine backups in about a minute.

Since its introduction, network managers have discovered the innovative approach to have widespread application for backing up client workstations. Older strategies required network backups to be performed over the network's communication lines, tying up valuable network resources. With XactCopy and a second hard drive installed at mission-critical workstations, automatic operation allows backup and restoration to occur right at the workstation.

In case of hard drive failure or an operating system "blue screen," the system can be completely restored within minutes. XactCopy's unique approach allows restoration of single files, folders, or entire partitions after program or user errors that cause valuable data to be lost. Users simply point and click on the back-up file to restore it to the system disk. Because the back-up drive contains a mirror image of the system disk, it retains all settings, applications, and data.

As the cost of workstation hard drives continues to fall, the sturdy reliability of a duplicate hard drive comes within easy economic reach. When compared against high-cost large capacity network drives, tapes, or RAID systems necessary at the server level, the strategy makes even more economic sense. It also provides a powerful server backup solution for smaller networks. XactCopy supports FAT-16, FAT-32, and NTFS and works with IDE and SCSI drives or any combination.

XactCopy was designed with the network manager in mind. Automatic operation ensures users never forget to backup. Each time the program is run, the backup hard drive makes a complete copy of the system drive. In many cases, the network user is completely unaware that the backup function is occurring.
