Hi there

I currently have Backup Exec setup so that Daily Backups are run to a USB Drive.

I want to now backup my sbs 2003 server to a share located on a offsite windows 7 machine.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Yes, create a backup to disk folder, to accomplish this go to the DEVICE tab and backup-to-disk folders. Right click and add a new backup-to-disk folder .. add the path to it using the network browser and then configure any appropriate options.

Then just configure one of your jobs to use this folder as the target..

Hi,

You can use Backup-to-Disk option.

You can also configure some useful options in the backup to disk config (which you should pay attention to) - namely the file sizes of each backup files, the maximum number of files the share will hold and the number of concurrent jobs which can backup to this folder.
