Backup data of machines connected in network from Windows Server

By ramesh_g75 ·

I have couple of windows 2003 servers running. All my team member's machines (windows xp) are connected to the above servers.

I want to periodically take backup of all my team member's machines data (i will share a particular folder in a drive - only this folder needs to be backed up) onto the above servers.

But the backup operation should run from server and not from client machines.

Is there any Backup software available in market for this or is this achievable from Windows Backup?

Your every clue would be so helpful for me.

you could simply use a xcopy script that run trough scheduled tasks on the serverside.

something like xcopy \\client\share \\server\backupshare

Here we use HP Dataprotector to do our backups, but only for a few files i'd say it isn't needed.
