Volume Path – Enter a new or existing folder path to place the assigned disk safes in this folder.

Quotas:

Soft Quota – Enter a minus 2 figure of your backup plan size. For example: if a client purchased 20GB backup space, then enter Soft Quota 18GB.
Hard Quota – Backup place size

Here you can assign a group(s) to the volume. Select a group from the drop-down menu and hit the “Add” button.

Users:

Here you can assign user(s) to the volume. Select a user from the drop-down menu and hit the “Add” button.

Step 5: Once you are done with the Volume settings, click on the  “Create” button at the bottom of the window to create a new volume to the system.

Step 6: If the folder doesn’t exist, it will come up with a notification window. You will need to confirm your request by clicking on the “OK” button. (see image below)

Step 7: When you click on the “OK” button, after a few moments you will be informed by a notification window, if the Volume is created successfully. (see image below)

Step 8: Hit the “OK” button on the notification window and the Volume will appear in the “Volumes” list.

That’s it!
