I have a windows 2012 server running Veeam and wish to export the local array of it over NFS. I've installed NFS services can can export and access C: from linux machines.
But when I try to export the drive I wish to use, it doesn't show up as an option. Anyone know why this might be?
I've turned normal sharing on it, renamed it, changed its drive letter and rebooted in-between each iteration of. None of those helped.

thanks if you know of a solution.g$

Interesting, ReFS?
If it's just for a one time use, MobaXTerm (I think the free version) can act as an NFS server.

humm I selected ReFS instead of NTFS... likely the reason huh?
I'll reformat it NTFS and see how things go.
