Backing Up a mapped drive under Backup Exec 12.5

Last Modified: 2013-12-01
Im having the hardest time finding out how to do this. Some say that going to Tools - Options - Network and Security - and clicking Enable selection of user shares should do the trick. But its not working for us. I dont see the mapped drive when I select the BE server.

All this is to be able to backup an NS20 cifs share. I can see the CIFS server in my BE 12.5 but once I click on it to expand and select the file to backup I am prompted to select a logon account - Ive tried every account I can think of to get passed this to no avail.

I have also tried to do a user defined selection and add my CIFS server there but get the same logon screen.

Any help will do. Thanks!
