I have upgraded my computer (whole system) to Windows Vista 64-bit version few weeks ago and I have to get new backup program, because the latest Nero bundle did not include BackitUp program(which was great).

I need full backup capability with incremental daily backups taken on NAS drive (it can be accessed via mapped samba drive or by over ftp). The system should include verify option to ensure data integrity. The amount of data needed to backup in first place is somewhat 400 gigabytes, and the backup should not be compressed to ensure easy access to backup files (reading too many cases that backups are taken but they are useless or broken since its hard to test actual backuped data).

My backup system includes 1 terabyte NAS drive for backups, USB drive for secure off-site backup(bank vault) (raws&jpegs only).

If there is any good programs please let me know (free opensource or commercial ones)...

Thanks in advance,

br, MJP

have you checked out syncback

they have a freeware version too that might work.  I use it for simple backup type things.  I can't say i understand all what you have written, so I don't know if it will fit your use, but perhaps...

Thanks for the tip Leaf. I will check this out today.

Update: Tested the program yesterday. And it has everything I wanted and lot more. The full version is very cheap also (around 24euros or something like that) and have many useful features I have not think about before.

Had to use the trial version (30day) to get more information but my initial experience was good. If it works ok after 30 days(no side efects, no hangups etc) this is definetly a must buy program.
