  • I'm going to move your post to the Backup topic folder.
    OneCare doesn't play nice with some NAS devices. Often it is as simple as permissions on the device. Browse through the backup topic folder and review the many threads for NAS devices that remain open with no specific answer. The best that I can suggest is to make sure that the permissions are set for all users to have full access to the folder on the NAS that you are pointing the backup to.
    Secondly, make sure that your source drive is not low on space. OneCare needs free space on the local drive to create the compressed files before copying to the destination.
    You can also contact support for help with this.
