Change Default Client Backup Destination Folder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • By default, Windows Server Essentials 2012 saves the backups for all client machines to a folder on the server.  We would prefer to store the client backups on a large USB drive that is connected to the server.  What is the best way to accomplish this destination device/folder change?

    Thanks very much.
