    Is there some way I can do an image backup to a network drive with just its IP address? I have network storage but I don't have it integrated with my windows xp as a drive letter, it is just an IP address. It does take FTP. Perhaps I could map to an IP address or something?

    I think you need to map the drive and then image to the root of that drive. TI will not image to a network folder (something I thought I rememebered.

    I'll admit, I haven't done it, but would like to hear from those who have, hence the post.

    Sorry, this isn't a good reply!

    TI 8 and 9 will back up to ip addresses or names such as \\\X$ or \\mynetdrive\X$ - whatever you can open from the START/ RUN command line works including shared folders such as \\\Acronis where "Acronis" would be a the shared folder.

    Hello jumboloan,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Server Disk Backup Software.

    Please note that using Acronis True Image 9.0 you are able to create an image and store it to network shared folder. You can access the shared folder either from "My Network Places" or specify IP address in the "File name" field when selecting backup archive location in Acronis True Image 9.0.

    Please be aware that Acronis True Image 9.0 does not allow you to back up to FTP-server. However, this option is available in Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation Please note that you can purchase upgrade Acronis True Image 9.0 to Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation. Please visit Acronis on-line store in order to make a purchase

    You can download Acronis True Image 9.1 Corporate Workstation trial version at in order to see how the program works.

    Thank you.
