How to backup to external drive

Post by pnb627 » May 03, 2012 3:16 am

I have a quikstor USB drive connected to the machine where Veeam Backup and recovery is installed. When I try to configure a backup job, it keeps defaulting to c:\backup but I want to go to F:\backup.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Paul,

Have you created a new repository for your USB drive? Are you able to select the backup repository located on this USB drive from the list of available backup repositories?

Thanks!
