Adding Microsoft Windows or Linux Files

At the Files and Folders step of the wizard, select files and folders that you want to back up.

  1. From the Server list, choose a machine on which the necessary files or folders reside.

The account you use to access the target server must have read permissions for the folder and all its child folders.

  1. Click Add and browse to the file or folder that you want to back up. The selected item will be added to the list. To remove a file or folder from the list, select it and click Remove.

To back up files from a CIFS shared folder, click Add and specify the folder path. After you click OK, you will be prompted to enter the shared folder credentials.

The sources of the backup to tape job are processed in order they displayed here. To move a source up or down in the list, use the Up and Down buttons on the right.

Adding Microsoft Windows or Linux Files 

If you add a folder to the job, all of the folder contents will be archived. If necessary, you can choose only specific files from the added folder. To do so, select a folder in the list and click Advanced. In the File Filters window, use Include masks and Exclude masks fields to filter the folder contents. You can use exact file names or create name masks (for example, *.evt or *.pdf).
