There are several ways you can select data to back up. You can select an entire drive, a folder, files, System State, network share, Backup Exec Agent volume, or user-defined selection. You also can use the Advanced File Selection feature to include or exclude specific files or specific types of files. Or you can set up a selection list that you can reuse for several backups.
To view the contents of an item, double-click the item’s icon. The item’s contents appear in the right frame of the backup selections view. For all items (except System State), you can traverse file levels from either side of the window by clicking folders and subfolders as they appear.
When you are browsing remote selections, Backup Exec requires a valid logon account to expand the resources and devices. If the default logon account does not enable access to a remote selection, Backup Exec prompts you to select another existing logon account or create a new logon account that can access the selection.
