Good NAS Backup Software?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!

 

So I run a NAS in my home (unraid OS) and want to backup my steam library which currently is 1,04TB in size.

My documents and such are managed by the Windows 10 backup tool...

 

Do you have any recommendations for a GOOD Backup software?

I made some bad experiences with Acronis and Crashplan, but maybe because of trial versions?

It should allow for 2 or more schedules and be as quick as possible ^^!

Also I don't care for the price (as long as it's reasonable) and don't want any cloud stuff.

 

Thank you very much in advance!

I'm not sure what your use-case for your games are, but since you are backing up your steam library, which I assume are just game data and not saves, (Since save data is much smaller and not sensitive you can upload them virtually everywhere) so this data is infrequently accessed. Please correct me if I'm not understanding. This game data is also not super crucial in the fact that you can always re-download them.


For these reasons I would recommend buying a $100 4TB hard drive, using Steam to backup the game data once, and then storing it away.

You are right, its just the games, most save files are on the steam cloud anyway.

 

I just like to have them backed up the games somewhere, since my RAID 0 array failed a few times (my own faults ^^).

 

Since I download new games sometimes and sometimes there are big updates, I would like to back them up weekly and automatically (my NAS has a lot of unused space anyway).

I understand. So you are in search of a program that does this?

 

I would try Veeam: https://www.veeam.com/windows-endpoint-server-backup-free.html

 

In this scenario, you'd be backing up your entire Steam directory.

Yes, sorry!

Thank you, I will try Veeam :)
