Win7 Backup & Restore--over a network
I have Win7 Pro on a laptop. I currently use a 3rd party program to do image backups to an external hard drive attached to a different computer on my network. I have never had to put it to the Restore test, but seems to backup just fine.
I am getting a new Win7 Pro desktop, and thought I would use Win7's built in Backup & Restore for that task. So I tried to test it on my Win 7 laptop. During the 'Set up backup' phase, I choose 'Save on a network' and then enter the destination. At that point, I am asked for a User Name and Password for my Network. Since I am the only user of my network, I don't have ANY password protection. Is there a way to get past this Name/Password screen? My 3rd party software doesn't ask for this information.
