Hello All,

I would like to run a one time back up of my SBS 2011 server. I would like the destination to be a shared folder on the network.

I have mapped this drive and it is visible from the sbs 2011 server.

However when I go to configure backup using sbs wizard i receive the error message saying no compatible disk drives detected

Please help.

You can't do that with sbs backup wizard.
You have to use script like this ; http://glazenbakje.wordpress.com/2011/04/19/multiple-backups-from-an-windows-2011-sbs-to-a-network-share/

From there i can run a backup and specify a network share.
