I recently started the trial of the Cyber protect advanced workstation and all worked well on 2 PCs, one running Windows 10 and the other running Windows 11, I purchased the software today with 3 licenses however upon adding the 3rd and final PC which is also running Windows 11 the backup fails saying:

13:30 — 13:30 (2 sec)

Type of run:Scheduled
Start time:May 13, 2022, 13:30:00
Finish time:May 13, 2022, 13:30:02

The syntax of path '\\?\UNC\studio_raid\Data_Department\' is incorrect.

Hi Stephen, welcome to the Acronis users forums. 

First, please delete you email address from the first post as it is risky to post them on public forums.

Somehow you post has ended up in the wrong place - it can happen when a new user makes post - not sure why it happens but it does. You should repost on the appropriate forum; I think the appropriate forum is Acronis Cyber Protect 15 Forum; I am sure I have seen one specifically for Cyber protect advanced workstation but cannot find it now - maybe just the downloads page.
