The Unitrends system comes prepared with a samba network share to allow external data to be stored on the Unitrends system.  The samba share should be used sparingly as data within the samba share is kept in the backup storage file system.

  1. Select the Archive sub system.
  2. Select Archive Now (or Schedule Archive).
  3. Select the box for Archive Local Directory Information.
  4. Select Open File Browser.
  5. Navigate and select the local directory “/backups/samba”.
  6. Select “Add”.
  7. Select “Archive Now” to begin an archive of the local directory.
