I recently purchased a western digital world book.  It attaches to our home network.  I found out that i can not back this up using carbonite.  I've been using carbonite for over a year now and am very pleased with the service.  However, they do not allow you to back up network shares.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can trick my pc (vista)  so it thiks a network share is either a physical drive on the computer or a folder on the computer?  Mapping network drives is out of the question, the application is too smart for that and knows that it is still not local storage.  I've looked for two hours and cant find anything.  I hope someone cxan help.  Thank you
