Backing Up Windows Media Center RRS feed

  • Question

  • By default does the WHS backup skip DVR-ms files from a Medai center PC?

     

    My WHS seems to be reguarding these files as tempoary files and not backing them up.

    Yes... DVR-MS are not backed up.

    WHS team decided not to back them up, because of the size of some recorded TV files.

  • Can these files be manually copied to a folder on WHS?

  • I know I can write an app to copy them over the WHS, but is there a way to tell the WHS backup not to skip them?

    YES....   You can make a shared folder call "Recorded TV" and copy them there.

  • That is lame. A backup that decides for you what you are allowed to backup? Kind of a joke.
