II – Cobian Backup: (My Advice)

If Netbak Replicator doestn fit for your need, you can use party software for backup;

So if you asked me what is my advice for backup, my answer will be Cobian Backup. It works like Acronis or Symantec backup. For more than 1,5 year, I advice all of my costumers Cobian Backup, and they send me “thank you for advice this free software” mails.

It’s free, it works perfect with Qnap, but its not official. Its my and My costmers (IT Managers at Turkey) Advice. Qnap doestn officially support this software yet! But if you want to give it a chance, you can download it from this link Free;
