Windows 7: Macrium to backup to a network drive?

Macrium to backup to a network drive?

I'm trying to help my son set up a backup strategy. He has a Seagate GoFlex 2TB network drive that he planned to do backup with. It comes with software to backup files and folders, but not the system image. He has Win7 home which apparently can't do backup to a network drive. I see Macrium is recommended here. Can the free version backup and recover a system image to a network drive?

Hi dideauce,

Can you map a network drive on Windows 7 Home? If so, then YES, Macrium will image to the network drive.
