So I just bought a networked external hard drive and I can't seem to set it up for a network back up. I have looked though the back up options and when it asks what disk I would like to save it on it does not have the "Save on a Network" button it is supposed to have.


Anyone have any advice?

Read the manual for using this drive...yet?

Checked the manufacturer's website for hints?

I figured it out, I was using Windows 7 Home Premium.

Network backup is for Win 7 Pro and up.
