Backup Exec 12 Setting Up Job Question

Hello Experts,

    Quick question when setting up backup jobs.  I have a server that I want to backup.  When I click the server and see the available items to backup it shows the hard drives as well as the shares that sit on the drives.  If I want to backup all the shares can I just click the corresponding hard drive or should I also click the Shares?  Thanks

No. You only need to click the drives that store the data. I never select the shares.
You do not need to backup the shares. All the data from the shares reside on the drives. NOTE: If you want to retain the security for your files and folders, you would need to backup the system state as well.
