backup with limited user signed on RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running three pc's with windows SP and a usb hadr drive for backup connected to one of the pc's .  OneCare will only let me back up if I have an admin user signed on.  I want to be able to have the kids signed on as limited users, yet still have the backup process.  Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks

  • My son's account is a limited account - scheduled backups work fine, I haven't tried a manual one though.

    A limited account user doesn't seem able to start a tune up or a back up manually but if they are scheduled there isn't a problem.

  • I don't have experience with the backup feature and limited user accounts, but if the backup is scheduled, it should work as long as the logged on User account has full rights to the backup drive Share. I don't think that a Limited user can start the backup though as they can't access the OneCare options.
