Mount NAS as local drive and robocopy file to it
Posted on 2008-06-26
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.
