I have an older XP machine configured as a network storage device with two 1TB drived Raid 1 acting as a backup device for the Server 2003 computer

I have a shared folder on the XP and Can see it when i use the backup wizard in 2003.  I get thru the process and get a final error that says:

"An Error Occurred while running the wizard."

with a 2nd smaller window that states:

"An unexpected error occurred (80070002)
The system cannot find the file specified."

I have administrators as a user with FULL permissions.  Domain Admins are a memeber of that group but I can not add them specifically in the permissions.

Also....if I try ntbackup via Run function, I can set the files to be backed up and can even direct it to the share on the XP computer being used for that purpose but the utility freezes and I have to End Process.....

Any suggestions?
