    Restoring Windows 7 backup to a mapped network drive


    Restoring Windows 7 backup to a mapped network drive 0f4aWysqmigUb9_EAwcb_9ApfrR3fyaNl56clyGT0-8.jpg

    I recently got a new windows 10 machine and I'm trying to restore some of my backups made with the windows 7 backup utility.

    Everything seems to work fine until I try to choose a network drive as a restore location. At first, it just didn't even show up as a location. I've followed some steps from google and gotten to the point where it shows up as an option but I can't actually restore to it.



    Any suggestions? I really don't want to incrementally restore to a local drive then transfer to the NAS...

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    I am looking for a free (freeware) program that will back up and restore a hard drive. I'm looking to clone a few external hard drives. If the program will backup the used space instead of the whole drive this will be awesome! Thanks for any suggestions.

    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.
