Hi there,

since we have a wireless network and a mediacenter in our flash share, I thought it would be a good idea to connect the external USB-Harddrive that I use for backups to the Windows XP mediacenter and back up everything using the WLAN (instead of hooking up the drive to my laptop everytime I want to do a backup).

I actually got the Windows machine to recognize and share the HFS formated USB-Drive (using MacDrive) and it will also mount on the desktop of OS X 10.5 like a normal shared harddrive.

But when I open SuperDuper, the network-disk isn't available in the "choose disk" dropdown menus.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks,
smubo

Yes: see "Backing up over a network" in the User's Guide. :)
