Hi there, i was wondering if anyone knows how to get or if its even possible to get the native backup that comes with SBS 2003 to backup Network drives? It appears all you can do is exclude local files and folders but it gives you no options to backup additional drives. thank you in advance for any comments.

Hi

If you open the Backup application and select the Backup tab, you will see there is a My Network Places item which you should hopefully be able to expand and see the devices on your network. You can select any network drives to be backed up from here.

By default, the backup configuration file which was saved when you installed SBS 2003 is saved in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Backup\Small Business Backup Script.bks. If you open this file up in the Backup program, add any network drives to the backup configuration, and then save the changes, the contents of these drives should be backed up next time SBS performs a backup.

Hope this helps.
