    I am using BLBackup to backup my HS4 system to a networked drive using a mapped drive letter.

    I am using backup paths such as this with no issues

    \\Tower\disk1\Backups\SystemBackups
    \\OFFICE\F$\BladeWebSite\BladePlugins

    \\networknas\backup etc.

    Tried differing the slashes or adding to the end no joy .
    Did you try that path while logged into the Windows account that's running HS3 and the plugin?

    Sorry to bump.

    I'm having the same issue. HS on a win10 p want to save to a network drive ( which exists ) just get "Backup folder does not exist". Tried various other ways to do it; no joy

    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.

    Code:
    net use t: \\server\share

    How do I run the batch file from an Event?

    Thanks

    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
