SyncToy does not recognize UNC path when setting up sync folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using SyncToy for several months just fine manually backing up my local hard drive (Windows 10 Pro) to a network drive (LINUX).  I am now trying to schedule automatic backups over the network domain using Task Scheduler with the UNC address instead of the mapped drive letter within the SyncToy pairing setup.  When I input the UNC path, SyncToy says it cannot locate the indicated drive and therefor cannot create a pairing. Am I missing something?  Like I say, it works when I use the mapped drive letter, but not the UNC path. For information the mapped path is Z:\Operations\WellShare (works) and the UNC path is \\fgs.net\data\Operations\WellShare (doesn't work)
