I have an XP Home SP2 acting as a file server that has ntbackup installed. It backs up locally and acrosss a mapped network drive to an XP Pro WS. two things I've noticed:

1) Wehn I run a differential bu it works locally but still copies all files on the remote WS even though no files have changed. Why?
2) When I try to restore a file back to the remote WS I get the following error:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have read and write access to the remote share and can save a file from the server. Yet, the restore fails. Why?
