Item

Description

Name

Indicates the unique name of the folder.

Storage path

Indicates the location of the folder on the computer. Symantec strongly recommends that you use a dedicated volume.

Note:

After you select a storage path, you cannot change it. Also, you cannot use the root directory. You must use a path.

Allow x concurrent operations for this device

Indicates the maximum number of jobs that you want to run at the same time on this device.

Logon account

Indicates the name of the logon account that is required to access this device.

Note:

When you specify a Backup Exec logon account for a deduplication storage folder, an additional user account is created for the deduplication components with the same user name and password. However, if you change the credentials for the Backup Exec logon account, the credentials for the additional user account are not changed automatically. You must use the spauser.exe utility to update the password for the additional user account.
