I want to back up to a network location but cannot figure out where to put the address in at. Can someone please help? Really would like to use this program since it looks like the restore is rather simple. Am using Cobian now and the back up is easy but the reverse is difficult.

Easiest way is to mount (or map) your network drive before you do a backup. Mounting/mapping assigns a drive letter to the network drive and makes it appear to your system as a "normal" drive. Then just pick it from the list of available backup drives.

Hi,


I think csimmons wants to back up TO a network location.

The easiest way is to open Backup Properties (Ctrl+P) and go to Network page.

Check "Change destination to network" option.

You can Browse or type the destination path in the "Network path" field.
