Hi Guys,

We have a Server 2008 Standard edition server running service pack 2 (this is not R2).

We use Robocopy to backup data from the server to a NAS box over night, this is setup to run via a Windows Schedulled task. When it runs over night we get the following error (0x41306), this result is returned for all out Schedulled tasks that we have on the server.

If we try to run the Schedulled tasks by clicking run, it all apears to work... but it doesnt as there is no mapped drive appearing in windows explorer for the NAS box.

If we run the Robocopy script on its own and not through the Schedulled taks it runs fine and we dont get anyy errors (if a little slow).

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated?
