Windows server 2008 R2 backup to a local drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • In windows server 2008 R2 i am trying to schedule a backup using windows server backup.I want to backup files to the local drive of a server.So i can't select first two option in specify destination type.So I have selected destination type as shared network folder.I have created a folder which is shared in C drive. In the specify remote shared folder page if i give \\servername\foldername and click on next it says that "The specified path is not a remote shared folder". My intention is to backup about small two folders to a local drive itself. How can i do it?
