Disallow network as backup target

This policy setting allows you to manage whether backups of a machine can run to a network share or not. If you enable this policy setting machine administrator/backup operator cannot use Windows Server Backup to run backups to a network share. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting there is no restriction on network share being backup target.
