It would be nice to have the ability to target a folder on a network share or external device. This was quite a useful function in prior versions but was pulled out of 2012. We backup our servers monthly to a single external drive but can no longer do this through BE. On that drive we have a separate folder for each server. Makes it easy to know what was backed up and when. Also easy to see if a server's job hasn't been running.

Looking at the media is not an efficient way to monitor the status of your backups.

Please vote on the mod not my personal uses for it. And as for efficiency, which sounds more efficient:

Logging into a dozen servers to check that the backup has run properly.

Checking a dozen folders on a drive and looking at the date of the backup file(s).

Timewise, the second choice is a 2 or 3 minute chore. :)
