I’ve installed BackerUpper on my Ubuntu 9.04 and it works perfectly if the Destination Dir is a directory on the PC. But……
Please explain how I should specify a directory on a network share (browsable from Places-Network)as a Destination Dir in BackerUpper.
(PS I’m very new to Ubuntu, so I’d be grateful for any advice.)
