We are a small office, 5 or 6 computers. Only 3 are every day computers, other 3 are "server", admin and extra computer.
The three in use every day are new win7pro x64 machines. Our server is xp pro (32bit) with a shared drive as our "server" drive. We access this for all our job related materials, etc. There is no network setup, just shared folders among our workgroup.
We just got the new win7pro machines setup and are using Windows Backup function to create system images to the "server" computer in a shared folder. We've got the images created on 2 computers, and can see the .vhd files and associated folder structure. When testing to see if we could restore from these images, we got the error "Cannot locate backup sets on machine, etc."
I moved the backup folder to the root of the drive, and made sure it was WindowsImageBackup or whatever the default is, but still could not find it.
I didn't have an external drive, as the one that is in the office is being replaced, and the one the boss takes with him, was not available. He will bring it tomorrow, and I will try moving the image to the external HDD, and see if Restore recognizes the backup image that way.
I'm assuming its a permissions thing, but haven't been able to figure it out. I've searched on this site, and haven't found this situation.
I'm probably going to create these initial images with Clonezilla as well, just in case, but we'd like a scheduled solution moving forward. We were hopeful win7pro would provide this, but so far are disappointed.
Any insight would be appreciated. If you need more information please ask.
