    NetDrive does not support backup softwares like CrashPlan. CrashPlan creates one big file for storing all files. If you backup 100GB of files it will create one 100GB file and it causes performance issues with NetDrive. Any other softwares like NetDrive will suffer from same issue.

        Crashplan does not work in this manner. It creates many small backup files. It works fine with NetDrive.

        Built in backup service in windows not so good for incremental/time machine type backup (CrashPlan) to online service that does not itself offer webdav access.
        Preferred backup software unfortunately requires a network drive letter to access local network locations

        Hi – please make Netdrive support backup software. In fact it was working perfectly with backup software until filesize got too big. Slower speed access to network drives on local wired network used for backup is ok (better than nothing at all) , so long as speed over local network is faster than the internet connection to remote backup desination – if disabling local cache or imposing a hard limit is necessary
