    Backup Location

    I am trying to set up a backup for a Windows 8 ASUS laptop.
    The backup is to go to a local network shared external drive. The folder for the back up was named Sue_ASUS_bkup and
    it was mapped as "W". The backup tools > Win 7 file recovery only provides a DVD as a backup location.
    It does not show a hard drive nor the network location as options.
    Any Suggestions?

    Not sure about the type of backup you are attempting (image, full system, incremental) or the frequency you require (on demand or scheduled) but this free program should cover everything except the incrementals:

    Thanks my2cents ,
    It turns out that windows 8 Pro does offer the option to backup to a local network drive. After update to Pro the Widows 7 file Recovery Backup worked OK to the external drive.
