Our company is moving from Mac Server to Windows Server 2008 R2.


I'd like to connect a hard drive to the Mac server (via existing eSATA) and backup our data (just file level backup is fine, don't need permissions or security) and then move hard drive to new Windows 2008 R2 server and restore files.


Does anyone have any cross-platform backup/restore software they can recommend? 


We have about 500GB of data, so I prefer a locally connected device to backup to instead of over-the-network backup.


Thank you for your ideas!
