Backing up folders

Hi all,

I would like to backup only selected folders.  Is that possible with this Smarware?  I’ve read the manual and it seems the best it can do is by file type.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

I’d point you to the most recent release of SmartWare, which allows you to select particular files or folders.  I do not know if you need to be on the 02.02.02 firmware for the software to work.  Check the smartware release notes requirements.

doesn’t say about firmware. I suppose it doesn’t matter.  you do need .net 3.5

Aahh, thanks guys.  I just got the drive last week and haven’t updated either the sofware or firmware yet.

I’m still at 1.4.5.2. of smartware.

Backup by folder is for me the only sensible thing.

Cheers.
