Mount network location as local drive

Hi,


I have software that has a built in backup option, but it can only backup to local drives. i tried mapping a network drive and giving it a letter but it doesn't pick it up. any suggestions??

my goal is to map a network location and have windows see at as a local drive.

If you open cmd and type

Net use M:  \\server\share

Whereby you specify the server and the share as you have created it, what happens? Do you get an error message?

Once a drive is mapped your software should treat it as a local drive. I can only assume that there is either a configuration issue with your share or a permission issue as the case may be.
