Backup fails reporting files are not on the local machine RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I've come across a small bug with backup using default settings in Win7 Home Premium.  Apparently Backup is using the path from Windows Media Player's library to include as a backup source directory.  Because the I have a media location on a network share, the backup is reporting failure.  The workaround I have is to either manually select the files to backup (leaving the music library unchecked) or remove the network path from WMP prior to starting backup (annoying and possibly impractical for large collections).

    I've seen a lot of errors regarding backup failures but none that addressed this issue specifically.
