Connecting to network folders takes a really long time - using BackExec 2010
I downloaded a trail copy of BackExec 2010 and am trying to set it up to back up about 8 desktop machines running either Windows XP/Windows 7. Each of these machines has a folder called BackedUpData and everything in that needs to be backed up. All these machines are part of a domain.
I have installed Backup Exec on a machine running Win Server 2003, which is also part of the domain.
I'm trying to setup a back up job that picks up data from each of the 8 desktops using the Custom Selections option. The problem I'm having is it takes a really long time for me to be able to connect to a desktop machine and browse content that I want to be backed up. I have a common domain backup account that I want to use and this account has been given access on each of the desktops.
Also I have not installed Agents on any of the desktop machines.
I suspect I'm doing something wrong, any help/pointers that will help me with this is much appreciated!
