        I wish HomeSeer would just put the actual location there rather than "default"

              I have a remote/network drive mounted on my Linux box and it works just fine.

                That's the raw files from the "latest" backup.

                The "default" path that the actual backups are stored in is [HomeSeerPath]/html/backups

                I proposed this when I reported the recursive backup within backup problem - as I had no idea that "default" actually represented a path, you can't put an English word into a file system path and expect anyone to know what that is. They fixed the bug but not that feedback sadly.

                What the actual?!? When I make a sarcastic remark or joke it is moderated/deleted.
                But you specifically go out of your way to label multiple HS4 issues that cause data loss/crash of HS4 to be "grumbles".
                I can't even begin to put into words how offensive this is.

                  So wait, to clarify, you can't put a network path as the default backup path for auto backups?

                  That seems like the most important point of doing backups, getting them off the local box in case the drive crashes.

                  And I'm referring to the Windows version, not the mono linux port.

                    Moderation level is getting absurd Rupp. You should be able to cope with criticism if you implement a crappy solution.

                      Backing up to a remote server works fine. Just make sure you use the UNC path.

                              So if you paste the UNC path into Windows search (on your HS4 PC) you can access it via explorer directly?
