Credentials requested for network backup

Postby EarthSpirit » Wed May 20, 2015 3:35 pm

Hi,
I can visit other computers on the network using windows explorer but when Fbackup starts backuping on the network the pop up windows comes up requesting credentials. I check the box "save credentials" but it doesn't remember them and comes up each time making the automatic backup useless.

Can you help?

Hi,

You can map the network drive in Windows and then use the mapped drive in FBackup. This way you won't be asked again for the password.

Hi,
Very strange. It worked fine when i tried the first time.
Now it has the same behaviour as before.
I can use the path in the Window explorer to see the files but Fbackup doesn't find it:

In Windows Explorer I can get to Y:\Users\Public\Documents\My FBackup

Hi,

Do you use the same user account (is that an administrator)?
Do you have the same problem if you open FBackup using right-click then select "Run as administrator"?
