  • Since the F: drive is an internal drive or seen as one by Windows, you must use the workaround to perform a backup to it by using Centralized backup for a OneCare Circle (even if this is the only PC with OneCare on your subscription) and you must create a Share on the F:\ drive. See this post for instructions:

  • You need to map the drive from Windows Explorer and set the permissions there. You don't share drives from the Network and Sharing Center in Vista. Personally, I don't recommend it and suggest using an external drive or a CD/DVD.
