Mount NAS as local drive and robocopy file to it

I have purchased a Western Digital MyBookWorld as a temporary backup device. I can map it as a network drive and copy and paste to it but when I try to robocopy the folders are copied but none of the files come accross. I also get an 'acccess denied' error. The text for the command is:

     robocopy "G:\teams" "Y:\(servername)teams" /v /R:5 /W:15 /copyall /e /NP /TEE /log:(servername)teams.log

I guess that this is an authentication problem but I am unable to add any domain accounts as the device is in the 'workgroup' workgroup. Another device, a netgear was set up by my predecessor which is appearing as a local drive on the server to which it is attached. Another point is tha when I create a folder it is a CIF folder.

Can anyone helpme on how I can getthis thing recognised as a local drive so I can either run arobocopy or use my backup software to run a disk to disk backup?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure why you accepted your own solution. In fact I think you must continue to have this issue. To remedy you will need to disconnect from the drive and then remap as a different user. If you have not done so you will need with the mionet service that comes with your product.

Following the registration details of your product you should remember your username and password used as part of the mionet registration.

Next you can attempt to connect the drive. When prompted for the connection use the following credentials.

username:
yourwddevicename\mionet-registeredusername

password:
the-registered-password

If you need additional help please advise.
