SQL2005 - Backup database to shared network location using maintenance plan

I'm trying to backup to a shared network location using the backup task within maintenance plans. The instance is connected to a local account and I'm able to navigate and write to the directory on the SQL Server. When I execute the plan I receive a successful result but when navigating to the directory it's blank. The SQL version is SP3.

Any help is very much appreciated.

If you are taking backup service account should have write permission on the network resources.

Hi - Just to clarify we are using Windows authentication to launch Management Studio using a local windows account. We have already proven that write permissions are active as we have been able to create a new file within the folder for the shared resource.
Please see screen shot below:

Thanks for providing the details. However, as per me it is the authentication to open SQL management studio not for the backup job. Normally backup job uses service account authentication.
