FMS 11 Backup to a Remote Volume on Win7

Your post

     I am using FM Server 11 on ComputerA (Windows Pro) & trying to backup files on ComputerB (Window 7 Ultimate).

     I understand that backup to a network drive is NOT available with FMS 11 for OSX, but IS for Windows.  In fact, I believe we had it set up for this prior to a hardware upgrade (all new CPU boxes).  But, I can't get it to "validate" on the network drive.  It seems to be such a "none issue" that there is no mention of it on this forum or the internet, accept that it can be done.

     I have tried to map a network drive... no good.  I have tried to type in the network address... no good (filewin:/ComputerB/Data/).  I am being careful to put in the "/" at the end.  What am I doing wrong?  Is there a folder permission I need to do on the destination computer (NOT a server).  If so, what would it be?

     Thanks for any help
