I realize that windows 7 home premium does not allow this natively and I realize this ticked off a lot of people (see link below) but there has got to be a way around this without paying more microsoft tax, right?


My first thought was to have windows do the backup to a local drive that was really a symbolic link to my external drive but I have been having lots of trouble with that. (see link below) So I am thinking this must be a very common problem that someone must have solved already but after much googling I have no such answer yet. So, does anyone have any ideas?
