I’m using crashplan for my home backups for a while now and love the idea that my files are safely backed up to the cloud. But also have a NAS at home and with crashplan you cannot select a windows network drive (shared folder) for backup.
But in fact, there is a way to do the backup anyway.
When using a Symbolic Link (Microsoft)… then you map a network drive to a directory… and then you can backup those files on the NAS.
1. <desktop>: make the symbolic directory link to the network drive: mklink /d d:\directory\nasdrive \\nas\shared
2. use crashplan to make a backup set pointing to d:\directory\nasdrive
