    Backing up to PC 20km away by internet

    Instead of using external backing or backing up to the internet, I want to synchronize a PC to be identical to the one I use
    daily. I imagine that using an internet connection and a bit of automation I could have an excellent external backup of my
    files.

    1. Is there a computer program that can do the backup automatically?
    2. Does anything think there are problems with this method?


    Thank you.

    Michael

    The remote computer would have to be setup and configured first, and you would need a reliable and fast internet connection.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.

    What you want is to backup your working files?

    Everyone's working files need to be backed up. This is workplace that recently lost data because of a faulty backup system.

    There are multiple users?

    I would probably suggest a syncing tool. This topic offers insight on multiple syncing options:
