    Hi Peter,

    A few possible reasons can cause this issue. To help us identify the cause of this problem, we would like to know the following information:

    • Do you receive any error messages when accessing your NAS box? If yes, what is the exact error message?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    Using network hard drive for backup

    It depends what sort of backup you want to do. If you're happy just backing up regular files, then there are a bazillion (really, that many!) different bits of freeware to do that. There is a good list here:

    Download Back Up Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks

    and pretty much all of them can do network backups. Some even have fancy options like encryption. Really, the most useful thing is just being able to schedule them and know they ran OK.

    You may also want to make a system image backup too, and you'll find that software in the very same list.

    I don't have Windows 8 as yet, so I'm afraid I can't suggest any for that platform. Personally, I use Clonezilla for image backups.

    Best Backup for NAS drives?

    Win10 no-touch backups to synology nas

    I have a Win 10 desktop and a new DS214play Synology NAS. I have been backing up my desktop with Carbonite for years, but now I would like to set up the same functionality on my NAS (since it is set to glacier backup). The key features I am looking for are:

    • No-touch change syncing - like Google Drive/Carbonite/CrashPlan
    • Client folder selection - On the client I want to be able specify existing folders, not limited to set folders like Google drive or Dropbox.
    • Version tracking - I got bit by CryptoLocker a while back, and while it was able to encrypt my entire local backup drive, and all it's changes synced up to Carbonite, I was able to roll back all those changes. The client needs to be able to write backups to the server, but not overwrite backups on the server (so mapping a drive to a drive letter is right out).

    Any thoughts on windows clients (or system settings) that would allow me to do this?
