I have over 30 years in the IT industry. During this time I have worked with a variety of products in a variety of industries.
This tutorial will walk an individual through the steps necessary to configure their installation of BackupExec 2012 to use network shared disk space.

Video Steps

1. Verify that the path to the shared storage is valid and that data can be written to that location

2. In the home screen, select Storage in the upper center of the screen

3. Select the server where the storage will be configured and click Next

4. On the type of storage screen, select Disk-Based Storage, not Network Storage and click Next

5. Select Disk Storage as the type of storage, unless the system has been upgraded and there are legacy folder versions to import and select Next

6. Give the disk storage a name. The description is optional.

7. Select the network share and either type or paste the path in the field and select Next

8. BackupExec will validate the path, then click Finish

9. The folder is created and now ready to be configured for backup jobs
