Onecare does not allow me to choose a central back up device RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Onecare does not allow me to select a central back up device. I can only choose the dvd back up. I have created shared folders and drives but nothing helps. I have two pc's with onecare but neither is a hub. They function separately and both have the same problem. I've looked through these forums but nothing helps. I appreciate any help but please do not copy and paste some general help from windows.

  • In order to use Centralized backup, one of the PCs in the Circle must be a Hub and it needs to host the Centralized backup location - be that an external drive connected to that PC or a network Share.

    You can backup from each PC to a network Share by selecting "network location" when configuring backup on each of the PCs - not the Centralized backup option, though.
