Backup settings for network shares

  • Network share location. A full network path to the root folder of the network share or to a particular directory is required.
  • Domain name. If the computer belongs to a Windows network domain, you need to specify that domain (for example, COMPANY.COM). If there is no domain, you can leave the field blank in most cases. On some networks, however, you will need to enter the host name of the target machine (for example, WORKSTATION-PC).
  • User account credentials (username and password). In most cases you need an account that has "read" permissions to the directories intended for backup (it will be necessary to scan the file tree and get file content).
