How to administer and backup systems over LAN with Toolwiz Remote Backup
The first step that you need to take would be installing Toolwiz. This free LAN remote backup tool is very small, so you won’t have to wait long for it to install on your system. After you run it for the first time, you should see this:
Each time that Toolwiz is started you’ll be prompted with the config window which can be seen above. This is where you’re gonna have to change the addresses of all the computers participating in the system recovery. The first address, the one on the top, is the address of the system which is gonna be used for accessing the client. Toolwiz will probably fill this address out on its own you just need to make sure it’s correct. Second address, the one below would be the address of the client, which needs to be repaired or at the very least from where data needs to be recovered. Ports also have to be configured. All the addresses have to be correct, actual addresses of the computers that you’re using, otherwise Toolwiz won’t work. Addresses can be found out in your router. When you’re done configuring everything, and when you click OK, the main application window will open up.

Connection notification stands in the middle of the application, and there you can also see some basic information about the remote PC. To use the remote tools you just need your mouse. For example if you want to access the partition of the remote computer, click on Remote Partition and you should be able to see the partition, backup photos, documents and so on, if the network connection is working properly of course.
