  • I am planning to join my 4th PC to the WHS, however this PC has the same user name as my 3rd PC. Both computers has the same user name, "Scott" I should be able to see the same private share? Can I still do backups on both PC? Thanks

    Yes, you need to create a user "Joe" with the same password on the home server and you should be able to access it from any machine within the home network after logging in using "Joe" and the password.

     

    User accounts and backups are not related. Your machine will be backed up as long as your connector install completed successfully, whether or not you have user accounts on that machine matching the server.
