You can move all data from the W10 pc‘s to the NAS, and make sure all computers map to the nas (Central storage). This setup is much easier to maintain as well.
then setup a centralised backup from the nas to another device like nas, USB or cloud.

you can also use Synology Drive, which complicates the setup, but is suited if your data is needed out of your lan, as it will sync upon return to the lan.

gerard: i did find that as well. what i don't understand is that i thought the requirement for ABB was 64bit + btrfs which ds418 does have? and i thought that somewhere there was a posting that said the omission for ds418 had been made available.
i appreciate your response; i guess it is worth a try for a direct inquiry to synology and confirm i was mistaken.
thanks for the response


eaz1954: good points. my 'trauma' is that in the last 'mandated' update from microsoft for win10, the update ran out of space and corrupted windows. lost a pile of stuff. yes, i did have an old backup, 9mos old, that i used to rebuild the laptop. i did that backup using AOMEI BACKUPPER that backed up to a desktop. [but i lack judicious discipline for admin details and didn't schedule more regular disk backups - i was kind of hoping that ABB would be the solution going forward based on this harsh lesson].
so
my guess is that i need to work out via AOMEI backups for the family machines and get individual AOMEI installs for each device to maintain the schedules to the nas.
meantime, i'll re-read your suggestions and see if that suggested path is easier and more dependable

thanks guys for your inputs
ron
