BackupPC no files dumped for share E$

I want to use backupPC to backup folders in Windows server, for testing i start with C:\etc and E:\etc

But i get error. i have shared both folders, and they should be reachable for the backupuser. im just wondering what could be wrong.

Here is the errorlog i receive when i try to start a full backup.

Running: /usr/bin/smbclient \\\\kunde02\\C\$ -U backupPC -E -d 1 -c tarmode\ full -Tc - etc
full backup started for share C$
Xfer PIDs are now 9968,9967
[ skipped 14 lines ]
tarExtract: Done: 0 errors, 6 filesExist, 22978 sizeExist, 8786 sizeExistComp, 6 filesTotal, 22978 sizeTotal
Running: /usr/bin/smbclient \\\\kunde02\\E\$ -U backupPC -E -d 1 -c tarmode\ full -Tc - etc
full backup started for share E$
Xfer PIDs are now 9972,9971
[ skipped 2 lines ]
NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_FILE listing \etc
[ skipped 2 lines ]
tarExtract: Done: 0 errors, 0 filesExist, 0 sizeExist, 0 sizeExistComp, 0 filesTotal, 0 sizeTotal
Got fatal error during xfer (No files dumped for share E$)
Backup aborted (No files dumped for share E$)
Saving this as a partial backup, replacing the prior one (got 6 and 0 files versus 0)

attached is the config file for my host.
$Conf{SmbShareName} = [
  'C$',
  'E$'
];
$Conf{SmbShareUserName} = '********';
$Conf{SmbSharePasswd} = '*********';

$Conf{BackupFilesOnly} = {
  'E$' => [
    '/etc'
  ],
  'C$' => [
    '/etc'
  ]
};

Since i wont be back to work before monday i wouldnt be able to test this before then.

But yes, the permissions are the same for E$ and C$ and i have also tried with a admin user that also has access.

Seems like only E$ is the problem, C$ backups just fine.

My solution is the answer for the error, but i wouldnt have found the error without other post from rbarnhardt.
