Network share backup requirements

  • The operating system can be Windows, Mac or Linux.
  • The network share must be available during backups. If the network resource goes into the sleep mode or gets disconnected from the local network, it may not be possible to complete the backup.
  • If computers in your local network are united into domains, the target network share must belong to the same domain as the main computer (otherwise there may be cross-domain authentication issues on Windows).

There is no limit to the number of network shares you can back up.
