I redid the pool on my backup NAS, and in the process, the backup target folders I created for the Hyper Backup tasks in the new volume are empty.

However, the Hyper Backup tasks on the source NAS now say that the target NAS is offline (it isn't, and I created a simple test backup to the target NAS which ran fine).

I'm guessing that the existing backup tasks can't find the old hbk files (it's dead, Jim).

Is there a relatively simple/safe way to reset my Hyper Backup tasks (there are six affected by this)? Otherwise, I'm left to screenshotting my current settings and manually reentering them to create duplicate replacement tasks. Yuk!

Thanks all.
 
If you know where the .hbk file is now located, you should be able to create a new backup task on the source, and choose "relink to existing task" on the "Backup Destination Settings" page of the Backup Wizard. Unless I'm completely misunderstanding your problem. That should import into the new task the settings from the old.

Unfortunately, HB does not support QC. It's either, a public IP, DDNS, or LAN IP.

That will work with 4.1 version. Looks like user feedback has been implemented.
