Network name is no longer available ( ? )

Post by davidrowe »


I just installed Backup4all, and have received similar error messages on two straight backup attempts. I'm trying to backup 3-4GB onto NAS (USB hard drive connected to USB port on a Netgear router.)

About halfway through the backup, I get a message :

Cannot add file "C:...>" to "\\READYSHARE\...\New Backup\".
Zip error: Cannot write file "\\READYSHARE\...\New Backup\"
The specified network name is no longer available (While writing compressed file in zip)
Backup aborted at 11/12/2011 11:56:04 AM with 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

Any ideas as to the problem ?

Please open Backup Properties->Compression.
Select the “Always use temporary folder to create zip files” option and press Save.
Run again the backup.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
