You can use Handy Backup as the NAS backup solution with one of two ways:
"Black-box approach": You can use NAS as a mapped drive, or as a shared network resource, finding it by network address. This approach has no requirements for NAS software or configuration, although it links all NAS backup operations to an external machine.
"White-box approach": You can install Handy Backup to your NAS (if it has any edition of Windows as the OS), or use the Network Agent for network editions of Handy Backup (available for both Windows and Linux OS). Handy Backup becomes a part of your NAS software.
The second approach requires some skill to install Handy Backup on your NAS. As an advantage, it allows redirect some or all of your backup operations to the NAS (very useful if you plan to schedule your backups on a regular basis and do not have a server mainframe in your network).
As compared to DAS (direct-attached storage, such as USB external hard disks), a NAS device has two big advantages. This section illustrates the "black box" approach when using Handy Backup as NAS backup software. To keep your dataset on a NAS connected to your network, please use the following sequence of actions.
Note: If you have your NAS mapped as an external disk, use the "Computer" destination feature instead of the "Network" feature, and select your NAS by name and/or drive letter.
To get a personal experience using Handy Backup as home or small business backup solution with your NAS backup server, please do not bother to download a 30-days completely free trial version!
Handy Backup resolved my backup problem - backing up an NAS raid to a USM attached drive. Could not find another product to do that.
