Hi,

I would like to create a HB task which point to a shared folder on a windows 10 PC. Is that even doable ?

I can connect a distant folder but only on a subfolder of a share. Problem : i can only create a HB task on the root of a share. The other solution would be WebDAV server on the PC but it doesn't look that easy.

Thanks in advance for your help and best regards

A Mac user asks: Is it possible to create a network share in Windows 10 that is to the specific [sub-]folder that you want to use for Hyper Backup?

The actual HB vault will be placed here but it is a self-contained folder, not a mass of files and folders at the share's root.

Thank you for your answer. I'm not sure I understood.

I want the NAS to write a HB vault directly on a folder of a hard drive installed on the PC. However I don't know how to point to such folder from Hyperbackup.

Yes you’re able to. You will need to use r-sync, then find a windows r-sync program. I forgot the name of the one I’m using (will have to check), but yes doable.

Sorry I was forgetting that a remote mounted SMB share won't be visible via the HB task creator.

You're options will be to run, as you and @Gerard say, either a WebDAV or rsync server on the Windows PC. Failing that you can connect an external USB drive to the NAS and use it as the destination.
