Backing up mapped drives to a USB drive failing

Post by nohero » Thu Sep 26, 2013 5:58 pm

My backup has run fine for 2 nights backing up mapped drives now it says a drive is not available in the log after failing. I can browse the Z drive i want to backup from in explorer so I am not sure why its unavailable.

As an observation today I created a new backup job as this wasn't working and chose the Z and J drives and it has run. Is it something to do with the way the drives are selected, seems odd?

Thanks

Any tips would be appreciated as this key to my successful backups

Hi,

It could be that the mapped network drives were unmapped during the night. Please try using the UNC paths for the network drives.
