Network Location For Backup???? RRS feed

  • Question




    I'm trying to set up my pc as a backup hub for it and my two other machines.  I want them to backup when they go through tune up.  So far so good. 


    I want to set up a folder on the main pc as the backup site but I cannot seem to get it work properly.  It keeps telling me I'm getting the file name etc incorrect.


    Anyone know what the correct settings etc are?


    Any help would be great

    Hallo again out there,



    I've set up a network drive on my main pc and it seems to be doing what it should.  I still can't get my laptop to backup to it though.  I run One Care on the laptop and it pretends to backup ... it goes through the whold backup routine ... until it gets right to the very end and then says ... sorry cannot backup or words to that effect.


    Any info would be great

  • From the laptop were OneCare backup fails to write to the Share, can you browse to the Share in Windows Explorer? Can you write to the Share by copying a file from the laptop to the Share?
