I recently purchased a NAS device to act as backup destination for my Vista PC. I can access the shares just fine from the desktop, but CBU is another story…
When in the destination menu, I click on the \NAS device, and it immediately starts browsing the shares. However, I cannot browse the shares themselves (“unable to get network files/folders”).
Looking thorugh the forum, I found a post saying I should have entered a name for the backup. So I tried 2 methods: via the \NAS\PATH\test.cbu notation, and via creating a mapped drive on Vista from the \NAS\PATH, and then specifying Z:\test.cbu.
In both cases the wizard allowed me to go further, unless I wanted to specify a subpath in the UNC notation, which gave me back aformentioned error. But both methods failed whilst backing up: the first method failed with code 5, the second with code 46.
What am I doing wrong? Also, CBU never offered to enter a username/password for the \NAS.
