Question

Q: How do backup a Windows 7 Machine to a Network attached Drive (WD Worldbook) -- using the Windows backup utility?

When I use the tool, it only lists a DVD drive as an option to backup, it does not find the network drive (and the tool does not seem to give you an option to search for it manually -- just has a refresh button). Any help would be great.

Answer

A:

ISTR that you have to purchase Windows 7 Ultimate or above to backup to a network share using the installed backup program.  The Windows 7 Home series won't do networked backups.

Did this resolve your issue?

Sorry this didn't help.
