Hi. I had a functional backup to an external storage. Suddenly its not availeble and server is returning Folder not found even tough it is accessible in windows folder structure. Some idees what could be wrong ?
Backups directly to the network don't work by design. It's slow and fragile, not what you want for a backup. The usual way to do this is to take a local backup and then use OS-level scripting to copy or move it to a network location.
But FMS does not support direct network backups. Hasn't since many versions.
Also keep in mind that FMS by default runs as user 'local system' and that one has no rights to anything outside of its own machine. That can be significant in anything that you schedule through the FMS scheduler.
But I know this worked for a month ago. But after ASP made som changed I diddent manage to get it working again. Does it not work with mapped disk either ?
No, doesn't work with a mapped drive either:
- FMS is a background service, mapped drives are a user-thing
- mapped drives are nothing but a fancy way to point to a network location
So weird that this worked for some days ago..
