Even though I'm a techie myself, I'm confused.
I'm trying to put everything currently on a computer's internal drive on a NAS instead. Everything is currently backed up onto an external USB drive, and obviously I'd like to automate backing up the NAS once everything is on there. But I can't find a decent way to do it! All the blurb on the internet goes on about using a NAS as a backup itself, or using one to store all your stuff but then is suspiciously silent about how to back it up then...
After doing a bit of research I bought a Buffalo Linkstation Live because it seemed to have a USB port that would take my existing external drive and could backup onto it automatically. All well and good, until the thing turns up and turns out to be a new version that doesn't have a USB port so that plan goes out of the window.
The blurb says it can still back itself up over a network to another linkstation, so I could do that, but it means buying another one and wasting the current external drive. Or I could send it back and start again...
Are there any relatively inexpensive NAS devices that can do an automatic backup onto a USB drive? I can't be the first one to have this problem... how does everyone else do it?
Yours in limbo,
