I have 8 production PCs that need to be backed up. They all 2 folders with the same name on each C: drive.  I don't need my docs, favorites, etc.  

The problem is that the production workers log into all 8 machines using the same username called CMM.  This account has the same password and profile on each PC.

DLO only allows you to create new user backups not Computer backups.  So if i created a new user called CMM and specified those 2 folders, how would DLO work if that user was logged into all 8 PCs at the same time?

 is there a way in DLO that would allow me to backup these PCS with this configuration?

I guess I could create 8 new AD accounts and have them login into each machine with a unique username, but i would rather not do that if I don't have to.  

Thanks

No. I it is all profile based. You need to create new accounts for each one.
