I have established a number of folder pairs between a local disk and a NAS drive and can successfully run a synchronisation manually - both from within SyncToy (ST) and from a DOS window. However, if I schedule ST using the W7 task scheduler the task is scheduled properly but fails to run. The scheduled task runs under my User ID - the same one I use to run ST manually. The NAS drive is also used successfully by ST 2.0 on a Win XP 32bit machine connected to the same network
I see the following in the History tab in Task Scheduler:

The following is from the ST log:

I would love some help on this one :-). Other people seem to have ST 2.1 running properly on W7 so I presume I am doing something dumb but what?
Additional piece of information I forgot to include: the "M" drive is the target drive, i.e the NAS drive
I am having the exact same problem. I thought it was my cheesy setup of a hard drive attached to the USB port of my Linksys router so I bought a real NAS drive. That one failed exactly like your did (same error). Please post back here if you find an answer and I will too.
Same issue. Using a NAS drive. Works fine when logged in, but not using the scheduler (Windows XP). Followed instructions in terms of making sure the scheduler has a proper username and password. Still no luck.
Now, all shares on the NAS that are not secure work fine (e.g. ones not requiring a login), only the one that is password protected fails.
Help? Direction? Something?
Having the same issue on a brand new HP XPS8300 with Win7x64. Same error and log. My backup drive is not a true NAS but connected to my wireless router's USB port. Kicking off the folder pairs manually works without issues, but the scheduled task is not working.
