Vista File Backup to Bubba2 - problem with Samba?

Post by joost » 29 Oct 2008, 18:19

Been trying to get Vista File Backup to work with Bubba, but so far no luck.
Does this have anything to do with the version of Samba that Bubba is running? I believe Vista Backup needs Samba 3.x.
What version does B2 run?

Any help much appreciated!

Just wondering if anyone could help me with this..
I still haven't been able to get Vista File Backup to work with Bubba 2.




I'm now looking into buying a Buffalo LinkStation Mini to specifically serve as a backup location.. but I much rather use my Bubba!


Thanks!
Joost

We are still using samba 2, though we are planning to use samba 3 soon.

Thanks, Carl, for the quick reply (and the good product support in general)!

It would be great if you could switch over to SMB 3.. I will be waiting patiently!

Hey Carl,

are there any estimates for this 'soon'? I bought a Bubba a few weeks ago, and I'd really like this backup thing to work of course.

I regularly use windows (7) backup to a Bubba 2 on the office, samba 3 is not required. The problems you have must be something else.

Can you describe what issues you experience?

Windows Vista backup still doesn't work -- I always assumed it was because of the - perhaps imagined - Samba 3 requirement --, but I just found out SyncToy does so that solves everything.

Very nice to have my Bubba2 up and running again doing something usefull! :)
