    File Backup not working with a Network Drive


    I recently set up a Homegroup on a Win10 laptop so I can see another PC on the network. That PC is running Win8.1, and I would like to use it for file backup. The devices are visible on both ends of the network and have connectivity, but when I choose to use the File Backup function from the laptop, nothing transfers and eventually I have to restart because of no response from the system. Also, my browser will stop working. I have added the PC as a network location and specified the location for backup, but is has locked up twice now. Could this be a routing issue? I previously ran the auto backup feature to a memory card, but need more space. Thanks

    :)

  2. error code 0x00070032

    Home network, 1 computer (new) windows 10.



    Re: BACKUP FILES

    I have an external drive attached to this WIN10 computer and am attempting

    to backup files from a network computer (XP Pro)

    When I attempt to add a file to the list of files to backup,

    (CHOOSE THIS FOLDER)

    I navigate to the file,

    The file is on a network computer (Windows XP Pro),

    I select the file, and then get a message:

    Sorry that didn't work, see error message 0x00070032.

    Any ideas?

  3. How can I reset Windows 10 File History settings. It will not backup my second drive.

    I am using Windows 10 File History Backup to backup my files to a network drive. I have a C:\ and D:\ drive. The majority of my data is on the D:\ drive.

    All was working well - backing up the data directories on both my C:\ and D:\ drive.

    I went to add some new directories on the D:\ drive to the backup set. I inadvertently added the entire D:\ drive. So, I removed the drive from the backup set. Now it will not backup any directories on the D:\ drive. I deleted and re-added the directories.
    No luck.

    Is there anyway to completely reset the File History Backup settings?

    File Backup not working with a Network Drive

    Which backup software are you using? Have you done this successfully before? Try copy and paste some files to the other PC. If it works, use some other backup software like Easeus todo backup freeware or Fbackup. If it doesn't work, you might set the network wrong.

    Hi -- I'm just using the Backup option in Settings. I was able to manually transfer files after I set the folder permissions on both sides *chuckle. I'll see how this works but I'll look into those backup software too. The built-in backup seems flaky and doesn't provide very much info. Thanks Molyy
