When I try to backup to a network share from a scheduled task the following error is generated:

Same error if run from a script or if the script connects the share first via a "net use" command. User has full admin privileges.

R-Drive Image startup disk


Is the R-Drive Image startup disk generic, or is it tailored to the same machine its created on. For example, could I create a startup disk on machine "A" and perform a restore on machine "B" .

R-Drive Image recovery disc and mapped network drives

I generate recovery images for my servers/workstations, and in one environment I create/restore these via a mapped network drive. I successfully did this using a 6.0 version back in Feb 2017.

Automatic mount / unmount


I am currently testing the trail version of R Drive and I wanted to see if its possible to schedule a daily backup which first mounts a windows network share - does the backup to this share and then unmounts once its finishes.
