Amazon S3 backup software by CloudBerry automates backup and restore processes to Amazon S3 cloud storage.
An ability to back up network locations is a feature that has been coming up during conversations with our customers over and over. The most common use case is a need to backup Network Attached Storage (NAS) or an external hard drive. With the release 1.6, we are introducing this option in CloudBerry Backup.
Backup Wizard’s source step has been extended with “Add network share” option. When you click on it a new window will pop up where you will be able to specify a network share.
Note: you might need to configure an account with network access for CloudBerry Backup service. By default, the service is running under the local system account without network access.
On the Backup Wizard’s Scheduling step when you schedule CloudBerry Backup to run on a recurring basis you will see an option to specify a service account.
Click to the change the account link to open account dialog box and specify the account with an access to the file share you want to back up.
Note: Using CloudBerry Backup Desktop Edition you can back up one share at a time. If you want to be able to back up multiple network locations you will have to use CloudBerry Backup Server Edition. This new version of CloudBerry Backup runs on the server version of Windows operating systems such as Windows 2003 and Windows 2008.
Note: this post applies to CloudBerry Backup 1.6 and later.
As always we would be happy to hear your feedback and you are welcome to post a comment.
