  • Where are you trying to back up the file?. make sure you have necessary access to the location/network path where you are trying to backup.

    The simple reason of you not having access to the path and trying to write your backup file in there can trigger this error.

  • I have been backing up to the same location for almost a year. I had trouble backing up to this location went I first set it up it is my external HDD. I resolved it after following suggestions from someone from this forum but that thread reply has been deleted I looked for it I found the thread but the information in the reply is gone and I can't remember what I had to do to get it to work again.
