Applies To: Windows Home Server 2011

When you add, remove, or change a volume on a computer that is being backed up, you should change the backup configuration for that computer to assure all of your data is backed up properly. By default, when a computer is joined to the network, all folders on the client computer are configured for backup except the Recorded TV folder. Use this to change the items you want to backup. To back up the Recorded TV folder, see Back up the Recorded TV folders on a client computer.

To add or remove backup items

  1. Open the Dashboard.

  2. In the navigation bar, click the Computers and Backup tab.

  3. Click the computer for which you want to update the backup configuration, and then click Customize Backup for the computer in the Tasks pane.

  4. In the Customize Backup wizard, click Add or remove backup items, and then follow the instructions in the wizard.

  5. When the wizard finishes, click Close.
