Could not back up to a remote drive in maintenance plan

I have mapped a remote to g: on my SQL server server, but I could not make the drive g: selectable in the maintenance plan GUI. I just typed the G:. It worked for a testing period. Later I wanted to changed ti g:\sql2kbaks directory. But it does not work after setting the destination to the folder for log and db. Here is one of error message:

BackupDiskFile::CreateMedia: Backup device 'g:\sql2kBaks\model_tlog_200404060000.TRN' failed to create. Operating system error = 3(The system cannot find the path specified.).

I used domain account in service for the agent and check security - the domain account has write permission the folder.

Any suggestion?

Arbert,

Thanks for your comment. It is creating TRN files for some databases.

It seems that it only solves part of the problem. I am getting errors for not being able to switch to single user mode. Is it requred to switch single user mode even if it is just backing up logs? How to force users off in maintenance plan?
