    Backup to Network Drive fails after 1 week


    Using Windows 10 built-in backup settings, I set it to do automatic system backups to my WD MyCloud network drive.
    The backup works for about a week and then I get error messages "Your History File Drive was Disconnected..." and it will never reconnect to that drive again through Windows Backup Settings.
    The Network Drive has 1.5TB Free.
    I can access that share all the time, without any problems in File Explorer using exactly the same share name as I set in Windows Backup, but Windows Backup says "Disconnected" in File History Advanced Settings.
    I've done this twice now: Set the automatic backup to run to the Network Drive. And it runs successfully for about a week. After that it can no longer connect to that drive. And like I said, I Never have problems accessing that drive/share in File Explorer - even when Windows Backup says it cannot.
    Any ideas/suggestions on where to look or what to try to get this working permanently???
    Thanks.

    :)

    Nokia C5-00 / Clock problems - showing wrong time

    Summarizing my tests using sw ver: 071.005:



    1. Time sync from network = ON

    Result: FAILED (the clock *suddenly* changed its time, 2 cases within 1 week)



    2. Time sync from network = OFF

    Result: FAILED (the clock *suddenly* changed its time, 1 case, decided to run test#3)



    3. After hw reset (*#7370#). New phone setting (old settings were NOT stored in the backup)

    Result: UNKNOWN yet (waiting since Oct 11...)

    Windows 10 Pro Build 1709 forgets Drive Mappings internittently.

    I've seen several posts similar on this forum but none quite relate to my problem.

    I have a PC with Windows 10 Pro (64 Bit) and have a Seagate Personal Cloud mirrored 3 TB drive attached via a local network. I have set up mappings to the drives as Y and Z drives for backups and set the "Reconnect at Logon" to YES. However, after a week
    or two or some other indeterminate time, the drive mappings are forgotten by Windows. I get a red "X" against the drive letters for both Y and Z drives. If I click on the drive letter, it magically seems to reconnect. If I don't reconnect by clicking on
    the drive letters, the Seagate Backup software fails and I end up having my backups stuffed up. This is very frustrating.
