  • Back up to the following portable devices:
    • Memory Stick Pro or Pro Duo
    • USB 2.0 flash memory drive
    • Secure Digital (SD) Card
    • XD-Picture Card
    • USB or FireWire portable hard disk drive
    • Portable media player with a USB connection
    • MultiMedia Card
    • Compact Flash Card

    When configuring backup, centralized backup needs to be skipped as a memory stick is not a valid destination for this type of backup, only backup for a single PC. It should appear in the list of destinations when configuring backup. There used to be a minimum size for these types of devices, but there is no minimum listed in Help. I believe others have reported using a 1 gig stick successfully.

     

    If you are still unable to configure backup to your stick, please contact support for help.
