just found this handy solution on another forum trying to slove the same problem. It comes from a user named Tech Michael I realize this is an old post, but still a relevant topic.
Windows 7 Home Premium *CAN BE BACKED UP TO NETWORK* via the following work-around:
Disk Management > Create VHD (Virtual Hard Drive) on the NETWORK
Attach/Mount VHD (automatic upon creation) > Initial & Assign local drive letter
Backup to VHD saved on the network.
My VHD is set to automatically expand as needed which I realize will eventually overrun the network storage, but I can always manage backups manually.
Hope that helps!!! Michael
