Solved Desktop icon to create and store a backup file

March 20, 2015 at 08:49:17
Specs: Windows 7 Pro
We are a small company with only a dozen computers.
All of our computers are Windows 7 professional.

I would like to set up a backup system where the End User will see an icon on their desktop that when they click on it, it creates a system image file and stores it on an external hard drive connected to the wireless router.

Please help me with setting up this system.
I don't want just the typical Documents, Desktop and Favorites. I know that Windows 7 can create an image file and so that's what I want this desktop icon to do, is create an image file.

I would like the system to store 2 or 3 copies of the backup before replacing the oldest one with the new one.

I might want to automate it, where the backup runs once a week, but I definitely want to give the End User the control to click on an icon and run the back up, let's say if they are leaving the office environment and going to the field for a week.

Thanks for any help.

✔ Best Answer
Have a look at Acronis Business backup software. It can image your computers while Windows is still running and it can do automatic backups and storage management.
