We've had a few customers asking about whether our backup software BackupAssist can be used to restore old backups originally created using NTBackup, to a new 2008 server. This isn't such a crazy idea when you consider that at the point that you upgrade to Server 2008 you may well have a large history of old backups from your old 2003 server and still need files from within them on your new server.

One of the most notable changes visually in Windows 8 is the range of new apps that now appear on the "Start" page. In a similar vein to mobile devices, there are email and calendar apps which now integrate tightly, offering handy features such as notifications. It's easy to see why some users will end up switching to this as their preferred method of access, so in this post I'll show you how to configure MDaemon to synchronise with these two key apps.
