Backup to remote Windows directory

Hello,

Is it possible to use remote windows directory as a target? I created authorizedkeys link, so I can ssh remote Windows passwordless and  tried "xxx@xxxxxxx:22:d:\backup", as a target but it hangs at the following:


Primary TMP folder: /tmp/xsi/3211853
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Secondary TMP folder: /vmfs/volumes/5fc4bcbb-34ee6cf9-62c1-001b219350e2/XSI/XSIBackup-DC/tmp/3211853


Thank you
Jacek

Re: Backup to remote Windows directory

New (c)XSIBackup Pro&DC are even more flexible than its bash script predecessors, nonetheless, they follow a Linux design, thus, they expect paths to follow Unix style conventions.

There's nothing preventing you from using any target that can be written in a Unix path style. Of course the target FS will play a role in determining the effective speed at which things work and how reliable your backups are. You can use NTFS, it's not our favorite FS, it should work though.

Instead of trying to use a Windows letter based path, use WLS (Windows Linux Subsystem) or even better something like Cygwin64 or MinGW64
