Backup to network share

Thread needs solution

When I try to specify a network share I keep getting prompted for cresentila. 

The device in question is an external HD attached to another PC in my network.  I can map a drive letter to it and read and write form the disk just fine.  Only True Image has a problem. 

Both PCs are running Windows 7 Pro. Both use the same userId and password. I tried entering hostname\userid but it says "connection failed"

Did True Image stop supporting backup to network drives? This did not happen on True Image 13.


Figured it out. When PC ALPHA wants to backup to a drive owned by PC BRAVO I have to specify ALPHA\userId not BRAVO\userId
