    Hi all,

    I was wondering whether anyone knew of a PC equivalent of Mac Time Machine? I have a Mac, running Time Machine, and it's great, it automatically backs up everything, etc.

    Is there a PC equivalent, because I might get one for my PC

    Thanks!

    As G8D said, just look on google, there will be hundreds of pieces of software that will do it, quite possibly thousands.

    Windows even has a similar thing built in that you can use with a WiFi hard drive and just set a backup from the folder menu.

    I like to use Sync Back. If you have a network attached storage or a network share on another system, you can map that share to a drive letter in Windows and Sync Back will do the job nicely. It can be configured to quite a large degree, so you'll be able to get it running as you'd like.
