Choose Path Backup as task type. In the example (task name Macy) backup source is the area "pictureworks" which is set in the sourceline.

The backup source is shown like this in the network \\macy\pictureworks. In SEP sesam it's inserted like this //macy/pictureworks/*.

Please note that the special Mac data attributes can not be saved using this method.
