Using Acronis Backup 2013, the message below is returned when trying to backup PC Earthrise C: to J: [attached USB 3.0 drive] - another PC [Earthrise: Win 7 Pro] Home Group drive.

I can access (R/W) files in the J: target folder, but Acronis fails. The Acronis routine for testing connection works OK. Backup to a folder on the PC [Neutrino] works OK, but I want to use J: which is my backup drive.

Why the error?

Access to the specified file is denied:\\?

I don't understand this. The PCs in question are in a HomeGroup with no user/password required. I can freely access the backup drive (neutrino J:) from any PC in the HomeGroup. I have, with a previous version of Acronis been able to perform this backup to another drive (M:) in the same homegroup.

For both PCs user is 'Administrator' and Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts returns "Create a password for your account" Must I do this to use Acronis?  Other network users would not be happy.

I consistently back up outlook.pst using a neat program written by the late Karen Kenworthy [Karen's Replicator] between these drives.
