I have two Windows 7 pcs. PC 1 has a USB drive used for backups. On PC 2, I'm trying to get FBackup to backup to the USB drive on PC 1. Each time I try a test backup, I get an abort - permission denied. I have shared the USB drive and folders. Also have used PC 1 user name and password in the FBackup settings. Still fails. Any suggestions to resolve is greaty appriciated. Thanks Ron.

Hi,


Can you manually copy a file from PC 2 to the shared USB drive on PC 1?

No, I could not copy a file from PC 2 to PC 1. Thanks for the clue. After finally figuring out the permissions for the drive/folder I wanted to use and was able then to copy a file from PC 2 to PC 1, Fbackup completed backups successfully. Many thanks for the help.
