Step 4. Specify Backup Proxy Server
At this step of the wizard, select a backup proxy server and specify a directory where you want to store backups.
To specify a backup proxy server and directory for storing backups, do the following:
- From the Backup proxy drop-down list, select a backup proxy server. For more information, see Backup Proxy Servers.
- Do one of the following:
- If you have selected the Backup to local disk option at the previous step, in the Path field, specify a directory to store your backups. Click Browse to select a directory.
To use a shared folder, provide the path manually. For more information about shared folders, see Network Attached Storage (SMB Shares).
- If you have selected the Backup to object storage option at the previous step, in the Local cache path field, specify a directory to keep cache that contains backup metadata. The actual data will be compressed and backed up directly to object storage that you specify at the next step.
When specifying a directory that already contains cache, at the next step, make sure to select the same exact object storage for which this cache was created.
- Click Get free space if you want to know the available space on the selected backup proxy server.
