Published: August 12, 2009

Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

Windows Home Server automatically backs up the client computers daily. But if you add or remove a hard drive from a client computer, you need to inform Windows Home Server of the change. You can also exclude certain folders from being backed up.

To choose which hard drives and folders to back up
  1. On the client computer, in the notification area, right-click the Windows Home Server icon to display the Windows Home Server console.

  2. Select the client computer.

  3. On the Computers & Backup tab, click Configure Backup.

  4. On the Welcome to Backup Configuration Wizard page, click Next.

  5. On the Choose Volumes to Back Up page, select the volumes and hard drives that you want to back up, clear the ones that you do not want to back up, and then click Next.

  6. On the Choose Folders to Exclude from Backup page, click Add, and then browse to the folder that you do not want to back up.

  7. Click the folder, and then click Exclude.

  8. On the Choose Folders to Exclude from Backup page, click Next, and then finish the wizard.
