0x41301 scheduled task error

I have a vbs script that backups some directories to a usb or nas attached device.
The script works fine when launched manually and it works when doing a backup to an usb hard drive.
When it is scheduled, it gives the error 0x41301 but nothing happens.

SCHED_S_TASK_RUNNING
0x00041301
The task is currently running.

I found somewhere to troubleshoot what really happens :
@echo off
echo %date% %time% %username% >> c:\bat\test.txt
cscript //nologo c:\bat\backup2landisk.vbs 1>>c:\bat\test.txt 2>>&1
echo %date% %time% >> c:\bat\test.txt

test.txt :
Tue 03/04/2014 23:30:00.43 Administrator
Z:\Backups
c:\bat\backup2landisk.vbs(186, 19) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Path not found

So the problem is related to the problem of Windows addressing networkdrives through a script.

I already disabled UAC, ran with highest privileges, defined workpath,
EnabledLinkedConnections parameter set to 1.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

The task manager is running as 'SYSTEM' and 'SYSTEM' has no drive mappings, like your Z: for example that is probably mapped to your NAS device. You can try using \\nas\share (if that's what Z: is mapped to) instead, this share would have to be available to everyone for writing.

Is is not a Windows problem, just a security related issue because your SYSTEM 'user' has no access to the shared location you're specifying.

You could also add a line in your script that maps the Z: drive before trying to access it, like this:

net use z: \\nas\share /user:username password

But this would mean that username and password are readable in the script, you have to decide if this is a problem or not.
