        has this been figured out?

        I have a QNAP NAS that I want to save my BLBackups to. I have tried as a mapped drive but it says Backup folder does not exist. I wonder if it has something to do with needing a username and password.

        Thanks
        Jim

          I've found that Windows will "soft" disconnect mapped drives so I run a batch file before I have HS (or one of its plugins) try to use a mapped drive. The batch file is just something like this and is called from an event:

          Code:
          net use t: \\server\share
          t:
          HS 3.0.0.548: 1976 Devices 1156 Events
          Z-Wave 3.0.1.262: 123 Nodes on one Z-Net

                  I would like BLBackup to backup my Homeseer directory onto a server that I have on the network. That server is protected by domain credentials, so I created a mapped network drive (e.g. Z:\) on the Homeseer Hometroller that had the credentials baked in. When I navigate to the drive in Windows on the hometroller, it works fine. So the share and mapped drive are set up properly.

                  But BLBackup doesn't seem to work with this. It won't accept the drive as a destination.

                  Bug?
                  The following only applies if you are using windows 7 as a host for HS3. (Not sure about Windows 8).
                  HS3 runs as an elevated app.

                  This behaviour is documented by Microsoft

                  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...when-uac-is-co

                  I used the registry edit method at the end of the article and now all the shares are seen by my elevated applications including HS3.
