That is interesting.
I do not see new directories created except for the master node. No new files, and no new
directories. I was expecting to see the DataDir\BACKUP\BACKUP-ID\ path created on each
machine, but I don't. I only see this on the master node.
Is there a setting of some sort that would change its behavior?

They do. In fact, the managment server does not store a backup itself.
If you issue the START BACKUP command to the managment, all it does is
say "go and back up" to the storage nodes. If you look in
DataDir\BACKUP\BACKUP-ID\ on each storage node, you will see that it
has appears on each storage node.
What is actually difficult is restoring it - I can't find any pages in
the manual that give an idiot proff way of restoring so I have managed
to do it by guessing from other peoples commands that I find on
