I can bet your network is like ours. The number of Virtual Machines we have running is double of what we had last year. For a long time now we have used a ‘poor mans backup’. We would shutdown the virtual machines and then robocopy the contents of the VM over to a backup drive. […]


There are lots of remote administration solutions out there. If you want to easily control computers outside your network, it always includes an annoying monthly fee. It is understandable.
