Box Backup is designed to back up local discs only. You should run
bbackupd on every Windows machine which needs backing up.
One thing which is more of a problem on network mounts than local
discs is that if the network mount fails for some reasons when a
backup starts, bbackupd will mark everything on the store as deleted.
