Windows 7: Can't create Image on NAS Drive

Can't create Image on NAS Drive

Hi,
When I access the Built-In Image creation facility in Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, (in Control Panel), I am unable to access my NAS Drive on my network. The hard drive on my Laptop is partitioned C: and E: and the only options I am offered are the E: drive or DVDs for Image storage. My NAS Drive is clearly visible in the list of drives in the 'Computer' Display and the content of the NAS drive can be correctly accessed.

Can anyone suggest how I can use my NAS drive for creating a C: Drive Image ?

Thanks

Not possible in Home Premium. don't know why they blocked that function. Use macrium reflect free or AOMEI backupper instead. Both FREE and more flexible. Be sure to create a rescue disk! Be sure to include network drivers on rescue disk so you can recover from image on NAS. Test if you see the image on NAS

Maybe they want force you to buy Windows 7 professional (?)
Difference between Windows 7 Home, Professional and Ultimate
and what I told "Home Premium cannot backup to a network location (only local backups). Professional and Ultimate can backup to the network." is in the text.
