I have 3 Pcs (all running Windows 7 Pro), and I want to use Windows 'Backup and Restore' to back up each computer to a partition on my main PC.
To be more specific; On my main PC, I have an SSD that holds my OS, and an HDD that I use for file storage. On the HDD (Disk 1), I have made a 200GB partition (Recovery R:\). On the Recovery partition, I have three folders (User 1, User 2, User 3). I want my main PC to backup to the following location: R:\User 1, my second machine to: R:\User 2, and third machine to: R:\User 3.
When I launch Windows 'Backup and Restore', I attempt to change the location of the backup to the above mentioned locations, but I am only able to select the 'R:\' drive, NOT R:\User 1. On the two other machines, I click 'Save on a network...' and only have the option to save to Network Locations like DAVE-PC > Dave or Users > Dave/Public.
The reason I posted this issue in this category is because I believe (for User 2 and User 3 machines) that I simply need to make 'R:\User 2' and 'R:\User 3' Network Locations. I'm not sure resolving my issue regarding User 1 would require the same solution.
Please advise on how to properly configure 'Backup and Restore' via network. Thank you in advance!
*Please note: User 1/2/3 are not the actual names of the PCs I'm dealing with... Just used generic names for simplicity's sake. Also, I did do some searching, but can't seem to locate any relevant solutions to this problem.
