To set or change the default folder location to another place:
vzabackup --set-folder --backup-folder-path %PATH% --backup-folder-login "USERNAME" --backup-folder-passwd "PASSWORD" localhost
C:\Users\Administrator>vzabackup --set-folder --backup-folder-path "\\SBMSERVER\backups" --backup-folder-login "Administrator" --backup-folder-passwd "MyPa$$WorD" localhost C:\Users\Administrator>vzabackup --view-folder localhost path = \\SBMSERVER\backups login = Administrator
NOTE: The --storage option is also available, which sets the backup storage location for the current backup operation; however, it requires PVA Agent to be installed on the storage server, whereas --set-folder changes the location for all backup/restore operations and does not require PVA Agent software to be installed on the storage host.
