Especially I am going to explain the steps to create a backup repository using windows Shared Folder.

Backup can be performed to the following storage targets:

• Local (internal) disk storage of the backup repository server.
• Direct Attached Storage (DAS) connected to the backup repository server, including
external USB/eSATA drives and raw device mapping (RDM) volumes.
• Storage Area Network (SAN). Backup repository server must be connected into the SAN
fabric via hardware HBA or software iSCSI initiator, and the corresponding volumes must
be seen in the Microsoft Windows Disk Management snap-in.
• Network Attached Storage (NAS) able to represent itself as CIFS (SMB) share (direct
operation), or NFS share (must be mounted on a Linux backup repository server).
