I have a W2K3 server that has Symantec Backup Exec 12 installed on it and I am attempting to do nightly backups to a Lacie 2Big Network 1tb Network attached storage device. I attempt to use the UNC path as suggested in the BE 11 sersion but I get an error of "Cannot create Folder. Access Denied" I created an account on the Lacie drive to match the account used by BE and still nothing works. I can connect to the file folder using windows explorer and the username and password that I have created but cannot through BE. Any ideas?

Perhaps the Lacie does not present a native NTFS permission, I have seen this with some Linux systems.  Also make sure that it's not fomatted with NTFS.  Since Backup Exec is using an active directory account it may not be compatible with the local account on the Lacie.

Is the Lacie formatted FAT32 or NTFS?

Straight from Lacie:

The 2big Network supports drives formatted with the following file systems: MSDOS/ FAT 32, NTFS in read-only mode, HFS+ and Linux file system formats (ext2/ext3/reiserfs).

Check on its current format, if it's anything but NTFS create or convert ntfs partition.  By default most come with FAT32 to support serveral Operating Systems
