We're trying to sort out which product would work better for backing up desktops and laptops. We've looked at the Workstation agent which does replication of folders to a central host and we have looked at the iDatagent for Windows desktops. It appears to me that the latter--the iDatagent--is better for more traditional backups of entire machines. It's similar to the Winders server product where you install, assign the machine to policy set and a schedule, and it backs up the machine or any pieces or parts that you want to. The workstation agent puzzles me quite frankly. We have it running in one department and it replicates My Documents on XP machines and users on Win7 machines to stubs on the server. What I don't see is any way to do more than synch files from specified folders--at least easily. So how do you get any retention with the replication, or did I miss something really important the afternoon the installer set this all up? Please share your experiences with these two "workstation" products.
