Robocopy fails cannot find network name

I have Robocopy set up and my other jobs seem to work fine.   Except for this one.

I have source as     \\servername\Shares
I have destination   \\servername\F\backup\

The log file has:

ERROR 67  (0x00000043) creating destination directory  \\servername\F\backup\
The network name cannot be found

Help please....      In laymans terms......   LOL

remove the "\" at the end. Robocopy does not like trailing slashes.

Also, if there are spaces in the share name make sure that you have it enclosed with parentheses.

Joshua is correct, you will need to remove the "\" at the end of the destination path: \\servername\F\backup\

is is there a share F or should the syntax be \\servername\F$\backup to use the administrative share
