Re: Backup to external hardrive Mapping Error
AJR - I have the exact same problem that Michael describes. The backup
location is fully qualified "\\Example\Directory" not a mapped drive. I've
tried every ID\PWD combination I can come up with and continue to recieve the
message Michael recieves or sometimes it says it is an invalid password, but
I can't get past this step in setting up a backup.
Thanks for your help,
