Network World - Symantec Backup Exec (we tested Version 11d) supports enterprise network infrastructure very broadly. Tracing its history through Symantec, Veritas, Seagate and Arcada, Backup Exec is the oldest product we tested, and its maturity shows.
Installation is simple, both on servers (Backup Exec 11d is hosted on Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP SP2, NetWare or Windows 2003 Server editions) and clients.
Our only complaint was the number of license key digits that had to be entered seemingly constantly until all was alive. Backup Exec supported file or snapshot-based backups, allowing administrator and user-defined backups and restorations. Individual disk partitions also can be backed up, providing good flexibility. We do need to note that Network File System partitions aren't supported.
