Basically be able to back up Laptop (rough estimate’s (( 1TB))) and Desktop ((4 TB)), and back up gaming PC (( 6TB )) PS4 (( 3TB )) and possibly not essential security footage ( 1 TB). So basically high storage that is compatible with various formats that is easy to use and access. I know its not a perfect world even tho I may be asking for it.
PlayStation only understands exFAT and FAT32 file systems. Backing up will need to be done on an external drive.
You can easily backup your computers and store surveillance footage on a NAS. The cheapest option will be DS218j or DS418j which is 2 and 4 drive option. Synology have created a free Dropbox-like app called Drive which will syncronize chosen folders on your computers. A very handy function is version control – letting you access previous versions of the file in case it gets corrupted or mistakenly changed.
For full backups of your Windows or Mac computers, you can use internal image backup function (Time machine/Windows image backup). Alternatively, you can use Acronis software which will back up not only computers but phone and tablets too. More info below.
Acronis True Image is a backup software which will let you backup Computers, Android Phones or Apple iPhones to your NAS. It is an incredible app because not only it can backup few folders, but also an entire image of your computer. This is super important if you need to get your computer restored ASAP after a massive system crash, virus or other disasters (Manual to set up NAS as backup destination). Backing up a mobile device means capturing all of the data – including contacts, calendar, photos, videos and other files – so you still have them if something happens to your smartphone or tablet.
Backup software for mobile devices makes sure you are saving copies frequently, reliably and safely. It automatically produces a backup and makes it easy to restore your files.
