Create Your Own Cross-Platform Backup Server

By Dave

As a Windows, Linux, and Mac user, I am always interested when something says cross-platform, and LifeHacker doesn’t disappoint with their tutorial on how to create your own cross-platform backup server, something I am currently working on, so the timing couldn’t be better.

I was originally thinking about going the Drobo route, but in the end, the whole thing was just a little too pricey for this blogger, and I ended up dragging one of my old computers out of the closet and throwing a bunch of hard drives into it.

I am definitely going to be using this guide in re-setting it up, as it currently works in a very geeky, time intensive manner with me FTP’ing things to the server that I want backed up.

If you are looking to create your own backup server, give the LifeHacker tutorial a try. If you have already done this, what methods, or software did you use?
