Hi Mikkelwilk,

Vembu NetworkBackup doesn't allow to configure whole drive as a file backup which contain OS(by default C:\ Drive). Some files available in WINDOWS, System Volume Information, RECYCLER and pagefile.sys will be skipped, because they are in always in use and modified frequently, hence we grayed out C:\ in add file backup page.

Note: We always recommend to use VembuVM Backup to backup the entire drive as image backup, which has multiple recovery option and much faster then file backup.

Regarding your question how to avoid unwanted clients to connect the backup server. Please create firewall rules to avoid unwanted clients to connect the backup server. We are currently working on a feature called "Blocking clients" which helps to block certain client to connect the backup server and it will be available in any of our feature release.
