Using Ver 2.1.4. We have 4 Macs in design dept and their current projects are kept in folder named "Work-"person's name" (e.g., Work-Amy). I want to backup just the Work folders to a shared network folder on an NTFS drive but NOT their entire drives. I know how to configure backup over a network but even when I select Backup-user files I don't seem to have any options to choose a specfic folder to backup. Any suggestions?

We can't copy directly to a network drive, gilley. You'd end up copying to images in that folder, which doesn't sound like what you want.

Thanks for responding but I'm a little confused now. I am looking at the SD User's Guide and it specifically describes in chapter "Backing up over a network" how to backup using "Disk Image" to an NTFS network volume. Perhaps my understanding of "disk image" is incorrect. All I want to do is backup the contents of folder Work-Name every night so that projects/data can be recovered incase of an emergency or a goof-up.

That's fine, then: just recognize that the files will be inside a disk image 'container'.

If you'll drop me an email to support I'll provide you with the steps to isolate a single folder in a backup.
