Technology management requested a more reliable system to backup 1500
Mac OSX staff workstations.  The current system required the user to be
logged in, provided no feedback on the status of backup, and made it
very easy to for the user to delete their data instead of backing it up.
This talk will discuss the options considered, problems faced, and then
go into detail on the solution choosen and the results.
