Backup Job Wizard for File Share: Source

On the Source page of the wizard, add a file share to your backup job. To do this, proceed as follows:

  1. In the left pane of the page, select the file shares you want to back up. Use the Search functionality to find shares by name.


    • When All File Shares is selected, all the file shares that were added to Inventory are added to the job. New items created in or moved to the source group are automatically added to this job.

    • Due to Microsoft limitations, Windows files and folders whose names end in a space or period cannot be opened or created. If a Windows-based transporter is used to execute a file share backup job that includes file shares containing such files or folders, the job will fail.


  2. Optionally, you can view and select separate folders of a share to back up. To do this, proceed as follows:

    1. Hover over the selected share and click the edit icon. The Select Folders dialog box opens.

    2. Select the folders you want to back up by selecting the checkbox next to them. To see the list of the selected folders, click Show. To cancel the selection, click Clear selection.

    3. Click Apply.

  3. Click Next to move to the next page of the wizard.
