Restore from a network share....who knew RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today I did a restore on my system drive(c:) on my whs 2011 server and one of the options that I was given after picking to restore the system drive was to restore from a network share.  So my question is, if the software wants to restore from a network share how does one backup to the share in the first place?  What are the steps to placing the backup data on another computer on the network?  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • If you use the tools in the dashboard, you don't back up to a network share. You can do so using the backup/restore tools in the underlying OS, but there are some limitations, (such as backups not being incremental if you back up to a network share) so I don't recommend it.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
