On Ubuntu, follow these steps to modify the startup script for NetVault Backup.

These steps are required because the /var/lock folder resides on a temporary file system on Ubuntu and gets emptied each time the operating system is shut down.

Open the file file. You can find this file in the directory /usr/netvault/etc/.


On Windows, the locally attached backup devices must not be under the control of the Windows Removable Storage service.

Right-click My Computer, and select Manage to open the Computer Management window.
Expand the Storage node to display the local device. Right-click the device, and select Properties.
On the General tab, clear the Enable library check box. Click Apply, and then OK to close the dialog box.
