Symantec offers free trial version of backup software


Symantec Corp. has released version 2010 of its Backup Exec software for medium-sized businesses.


A trial version can be downloaded from Symantec’s Web site. Symantec does not support trial users.



A supported version costs $1,174 for a media server licence and basic maintenance.


Symantec recently held a conference in Toronto on both Backup Exec 2010 and NetBackup 7 for customers and resellers.



The Cupertino, Calif. software maker said it has improved the de-duplication capabilities of both software packages so companies can backup data without clogging the network.


Backup Exec 2010 has a granular recovery feature that lets administrators get individual e-mails, inboxes or files from a single system backup in a virtual environment.
