Shared Folder Settings

The Shared Folder step of the wizard is available if you have selected to restore data from a backup file located in a network shared folder.

Specify settings for the network shared folder:

  1. In the Shared folder field, enter a UNC name of the network shared folder with a backup file. Keep in mind that the UNC name always starts with two back slashes (\\).
  2. If the network shared folder requires authentication, select the This share requires access credentials check box and specify a user name and password of the account that has Full Control access permissions on this shared folder. The user name must be specified in the down-level logon name format. For example, DOMAIN\UserName or HOSTNAME\UserName.

To view the specified password, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the Password field.
