Central Backup Question using OneCare... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use a laptop in Texas using a Buffalo USB External Hard drive as a central backup device for my Live One Care Circle. However, My desktop located in Ohio needs to be able to backup using the central backup location in Texas. Is this possible, if so please explain how using OneCare. If not, why? ~Bill

  • No, this cannot be done. Backup to a Centralized backup device can only be done when the backup device and the PC that needs to access it are on the same local network segment. It cannot happen over the Internet.
