File to Tape - Empty Folder question

Post by gessi0 »

Hey all,

i have a problem with a simple File to Tape Job.
My goal is to backup our file archive from the fileserver to tape. Simple an straight.

I have added my file server to the backup infra struktur with correct fsadmin credentials. My problem is now, when i am trying to add some special folders in my filestructure to the job, i only got the root folder on my server. I cannot browse deeper in the structure. Please see attached screenshot for details.

Maybe i miss something?

thank you

best regards

Hi Markus and welcome to the community!
Could you tell about your source repository, is it deduplicating storage appliance or shared folder backup repository?
By the way, what is your current product version?
Thanks!
