Backup Selection lists no longer showing shares

This issue has been solved. See solution.



I've been using BE 2012 for a few weeks.  Until recently Backup selection lists would list shares on the server along with local drives etc.

I'm trying to create new backup jobs and edit existing backup jobs.  The Backup Selections list on the browse tab does not list the shares on the server.

Am I imagining things?  I'm sure that I could see shares previously.  The selections detail tab shows shares that are being backup up on existing jobs.

How do I make the shares appear again on the browse tab?

Thanks.

Click on the yellow BE icon (at extreme top left corner of the console), choose Configuration & Settings - Backup Exec settings. On the left pane, choose Network and Security & on the right-side, is the option to enable selection of user shares selected ?

If this option is already enabled, do ensure atleast 1 Agent for Windows license is installed.

Thank you!  I've found it and can select shares now.  I must have accidentally unchecked it.
