Recently installed 21 on Hyper-V 2016 after running 2010 R3 for about a decade.
I'm trying to connect to a remote server and folder using \\server\d$\folder. I DO NOT WANT to share the folder since getting hit with ransomware back in December.
But when I try to add storage with the admin share it says administrative shares are not allowed and if I map a drive letter to the folder it says it's a "CD-ROM, DVD-ROM or RAM drive" and that's not allowed.
I have not yet installed the agent from this version on that server, would that make a difference? Is there some step further in setting up a backup job that would allow it? Perhaps some option in settings?
What you can do is
1) Load the agent on the source server.
2) Create a job to back up this server and then exclude everything except the folder(s) that you want to back up.
