I think, you have only one workaround for this problem, because the Windows Backup has not any settings or registry parameters for it.
For more info: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb891959(v=vs.85).aspx
You can use
subst command to mount a directory as drive in backuped system and Windows Installer too.
- Make an auto running script with
subst for always present backup drive.
- Configure Windows Backup to use this drive
- You are finished on backup site!
- Boot a Windows Installer.
F10 for catch a command prompt.
- Re-create the
- Exit from console
- Start restore process from this drive.
- Cheers! ;)
Here are some methods what will work for backup, but you can restore files on working system only! Can not use these in Windows Installer / Recovery Partition!
Localhost network share: You can share a local directory and make backup on local share.
The Windows Installer environment is not supported make shares, so you can not make same environment for restore. The required services are not available and the
net share command will not work!
VHD file: You can mount a virtual disk image and can use it as backup destination.
vhdmount command is not present in installer, so you can not reach your recovery data.
P.S: Any backup are not worth anything, when I can not restore the original state!
