Any software junkies (or frat admins) out there care to chime in? Seems like a common problem, actually, and we're more than confident that someone sticking to that 4.0 GPA has an answer. Toss yours in comments below."I'm a college student and we are updating our intranet / network capabilities at my fraternity. One idea is to create a network drive for backups for each member living in the house. We already have a network drive accessible by everyone wired in (about 40 people via Ethernet cable), so the raw storage and infrastructure is there. What is a good backup software that is cross-platform (Mac and Windows) and free or relatively cheap? Moreover, once the backup software is in place, what steps should be taken to ensure security of each members data? Thanks!"
