Backup Exec 2014 on Windows 7

Created: 07 Jun 2014 • Updated: 08 Jun 2014 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm after a backup solution for my home computer/NAS and Symantec System Recovery 2014 just doesn't cut the mustard!

Does anyone know of a hack around that can make Backup Exec install on a Windows 7 machine (not the administration console, but the entire product?)

 

Thanks

Peter

There is no hack. Since BE 2012, you need a server class OS to install BE.

There is no version of BE which supports the use of Windows 7 as a media server

I like (and use) Crashplan for my home "stuff".

They have a free and a paid version.. for what I need the free one work great.
