    I take it you have run through the docs on creating a Backup to Disk folder?

    If so, what is the error you receive when the job fails? Also check in Event viewer for any BUE related errors.

    Does your nas applicance / hard drive support using a CIFS share?  I assume your using some type of nas appliance, but if it's just a simple soho device this may not be possible.
