Backup2Go Server on Linux: "The Data Storage Directory is not supported."

I'm trying to setup a Linux machine as my B2Go server, but I'm getting the following error message: "The Data Storage Directory is not supported."


On Linux, please enable the user_xattr mount option for the ext3/4 filesystem. 

Usingthe mount command, you should get an output similar to this:

/dev/sda6 on /home type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)


The requirements for a B2Go server on Linux are:

Filesystem must support softlinks, hardlinks, extended attributes and standard Linux (utf-8) file names. 

It is NOT possible to use the root of the filesystem as root for the repository. Instead, create a subfolder and use that one for the B2Go repository.
