Windows 7 Professional - Backup to network drive failed...


  • Hi everyone,

    After doing some research and not finding an answer, I've decided to post my question.

    We have a Windows 2008 R2 server with hard drives in a RAID5 configuration, and a special partition specifically for backing up my copy of Windows 7 Professional, which is mapped as a network drive.  We also have a shared drive (also a partition), which is mapped as a network drive on each of the computers here.  In addition to file sharing, this particular server is also used for printer services, DHCP, DNS, and Active Directory.

    At this time, I have not been able to successfully complete a backup to the network drive.  I keep getting a notice saying:

    • Check your backup:  The specified backup storage location is invalid.
    • Backup location:  \\ServerNameHere\ChrisBackup\
    • Error code:  0x8078000C

    I have tried changing the backup settings, to no avail.  After looking through some articles on this site, I also went through the registry... nothing.

    I would be very grateful if someone could assist.

    Thank you so much!
