"In all honesty, I am still a Bacula novice. However, I am not a backup software novice and can already see, based on my slightly over two weeks of working with Bacula, that this is some excellent, well designed and well documented software. Bacula is also complex software and takes a willingness to study and learn before one can get one's mind around how it all works.

"It can be daunting to begin working with Bacula if one is completely new to business backup systems, especially enterprise grade business backup systems. But with some study of the Bacula documentation, experimentation with several non-critical test backups and the Webmin (Warning!) Bacula module, the work to get several PC systems backed up on a regular schedule can be much easier. In my experience, it is easier than running something like Retrospect Express, a typical small business backup solution, on each PC."
