Windows 8 Issue - Scheduled Task Can't Access Mapped Drive

    Question

  • I have a background process that worked fine under XP.  It pulls data from another machine (a Mac Pro) for archiving on our server. 

    Facts:

    - The Mac Pro drive is mapped to the "X" drive. 

    - Everyday, I see the drive and its contents fine when accessing directly from my Win 8 machine.

    - The Scheduled Task is running with the highest privileges, using the same admin account with which I login to Win 8.

    - The process runs fine from the File Explorer.  Task Scheduler sees it as a "completed" process everyday (no issues)

    In my log file, I get:

    09/12/2013  01:00:00 Archiving commences.                                                                     
    09/12/2013  01:00:01 Archiving root directory: X:\Clients\ACWC                                                                                     
    ** "X:\Clients\ACWC" was not found. (293)

    (this is repeated for all directories selected for the archiving process)
