    Hi all,

    I am new here. I am a linux guy (pour me the hate mails), I don't use a mac. But so it happens, I am now needed to backup files automatically from a Macbook Pro notebook to a NAS device that is attached to the wireless router.

    The Macbook has some files in it, and a lot of them are constantly updated. The user of the Macbook roams around the building. There is only one NAS device.

    Can somebody please suggest/recommend a good backup software for this kind of use here?

    I tried Bonkey. For the life of me, I cannot configure it. It doesn't help.

    Thank you for your help.
    :rolleyes:

    Time Machine would be the first thing I'd try, I know it can be used on Apple's Time Capsule, which is a wireless drive, so it may work with a different NAS.

    I'm sure I read in another thread here that TM is not supported on NAS. I don't think TC counts as NAS in that context. There are some workarounds for some drives, but for backup I wouldn't be using anything that's not 100% supported.
