When attempting to setup a Backup job from one Llinkstation to the other, it works fine if I go from my older Linkstation Pro to my brand new Linkstation Mini, but not in the other direction.

 

Linkstation List shows both units correctly.  However Destination Backup Shared Folder only display one choice:

                    LS-WSGLEAA@share

 

This is the Mini.  I searched the help files but didn't find anything helpful.

 

I should add that I want now to use the PRO as a mirror for the Mini, as the Mini now has DLNA support, otherwise would just mirror to the Pro and be done.

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

 

Steve

Usually this is just a matter of not having backup support turned on within the configuration page of the device. If you go into the web interface of the pro, then go to Shared Folders, click on the folder you wish to back up to and where it says shared folder support make sure the Backup box is checked.
