SMB Share

Data storage is the location where the backups are stored. Xopero ONE allows users to define multiple datastores, and they can be assigned to any backup plans. During the backup, the agent writes data directly to the data storage, no other system element intervenes in this process. Storage management is available on the Storages tab in Xopero ONE Panel.

Adding storage

One of the available storage types is SMB share. To add a new storage to Xopero ONE, open the Storages tab and click (+) Add storage button. After that, the application will display the Add storage form. Regardless of the type of storage that you want to create, you're able to define the Storage name.

And Optional description.

These two fields will help you identify the storage, if you'll decide to use many of them. In order to create SMB share storage, expand the Storage type list and choose Network location (SMB share).

After that, fill out the Username and add a password using Password Manager. They need to match with specific domain credentials that share the network location.

Last part of the configuration is setting up the path to the shared location. Before doing that make sure that the device, which will browse the storage, can discover it. By using Change button, you can select one of the devices assigned to Xopero ONE as Browsing machine - the one that will connect the share to the system.

To set the path to share location type in whole path or just address of the server that contains the share in Path to the SMB share field.

Using the second option (which provides only a server address) will allow you to browse through the server shares by choosing Folders icon.

Select the share that you want to store your data on and click Apply button.

When you are done with the settings, click Save button.
