Questions and answers about the software abylon BACKUP-TUBE (FAQ's)

Backup and synchronize files manually or automatically

Network drives are generally supported!

Under Windows 8 and 10 it can happen that configured network drives are not displayed in the software abylon BACKUP-TUBE. This is usually due to the user permissions. Normally network drives are created in the user context, whereby the admin user receives no access authorization.

Our software is started once during the installation with admin rights to make settings on the computer. This may cause network drives not to be displayed. After installation the software should be closed first. When the software is started again (e.g. via the desktop icon), it is started with normal user rights. Now all configured network drives should also be accessible and selectable.

NOTE Directories in the network cannot be selected via the selection dialog. But they can also be entered manually in the edit field. A network address always starts with a double backslash (example: \\PC-NAME\directory or \\\directory).
