BackupExec not recognizing share on a LaCie 1 TB drive as a Backup to Folder destination

We are running BackupExec 11d SP3 and purchased a LaCie 1 TB Ethernet drive to use a Backup to Folder destination for BackupExec.

The LaCie is configured on the network, create a share, assigned rights to it, etc.  We can get to the drive via Explorer, create folders, files, etc.  It's working fine.

However,  within BackupExec, when creating a "Backup to Folder" Destination, cannot access the share.
The LaCie drive shows up in Network Places, but when clicking on the + sign next to the device, it will not open up and show the shares that are on the drive.

I thought it was a user rights issue, but I created an admnistrator account with same password as the Windows Server administrator account.  I can access it via Explorer and My Network Places, but not from within BackupExec.

Anyone have this problem and solved it?

Thanks,
Jim

You should be able to add the share as a user-defined selection.

right click on the User-Defined selected, then enter the UNC name and add it.

Great, Jeff!
That worked.... I thought I tried it before and it wouldn't work, but it did this time.

Thanks!
