I wanted to use an FTP location as backup for scheduled Windows Server 2012 Backup.
I can't make it work because Windows refuses to accept the network location as drive. Even with "FTPUse" (socket error appeared, no idea why...) or "WebDrive" it didn't work out.
Many people suggested that WebDrive would be a nice solution. I was able to assign a drive letter to the FTP location and it appeared like that in Windows Explorer. But the Backup application of the server didn't let me pick it when I wanted to use "Back up to a volume" or "Back up to a shared network folder".
Any idea how I could get a workaround?
