Was going through my backup configuration settings yesterday, and noticed I was getting the an error about symbolic links and simplified disaster recovery.
Google brought me to the conclusion that it's an issue with data drives becoming unavailable, and that's when I realized the error was referring to UNC paths.
Going over the config I realized that the backup was set to backup three shared folders in the server, and I'm guessing this is most likely what caused the error I saw.
Now for my actual question: How does backup exec handle these shared folders? Does it include all the contents of the folder in backup? That would mean it's backed up twice in this case for a single backup, which makes it unnecessary in my head.
Thanks for any light you guys might help me shed on it!
