    So I recently went through the fiasco of having to completely re-setup my home network. I must say, it was no easy task. 2 macs, 2 PCs, 2 wireless routers, one Time Capsule, a printer. Fun stuff. Anyways, I would like to get my dad's PC (windows xp) set up to back up to the Time Capsule, similar to how our macs are backed up. I am looking for a freeware solution to backup daily to the network hard drive inside the Time Capsule. The drive is mapped fine, I'm just wondering if any of you recommend any free software for doing this.

    thanks in advance,
    -Dylan

    I use SyncToy to back up. It's not to a Network Drive, but it's same principle.
    It works great, but the only thing i would say is to be careful if you change files on the network drive as it sometimes doesnt sync properly if you have it set to Echo and not Synchronise
