"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

"Backup Network Drives" does exactly that - it backs up a network drive mapped to the server being backed up. "Cross Mount Points" tells NetBackup to either ignore a mount point (from Wikipedia: "Microsoft's NTFS  3 also supports Volume Mount Points through the use of NTFS reparse points, which allows volumes to be mounted at arbitrary locations in the file system in addition to the standard drive letters (e.g. C:, E:"). or back it up when it finds one. If you followed mount points and your mount point was a local drive, and your policy was ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES, you'd end up backing up the data twice.
