How can I backup files on a network?

[ Edited ]

Hi All,


Recently I tried Windows Vista's automatic Back Up and puzzled about it.


In the Back up file's 

Where do you want to save your backup?


( ) On a Hard disk, CD, or DVD:


( ) On a network:


I would like to know how to save a file to network. Is this mean I can save my back up in MSN Skydrive?


The network share could not be access for following  reason

No mapping between account names and security IDs was done,


Please ensure that the network location is valid.


Anybody know show to set a network folder for back up?

Any words of direction? Thank you.

Re: How can I backup files on a network?

hey jugem,

backing up files on a network would require you to have either a different computer that is connected to your current computer via a wired connection or wireless connection.

It might be possible for you to backup to MSN Skydrive if you're able to map it to your system as a Network Drive.

For all of this, I do recommend getting in contact with Microsoft as these features are by them
