I have MyBook World Edition II (White Light) set up as a NAS and tried to use the WD Anywhere Backup. Using the defaults it put the backup for my Vista machine in the public folder. Not secure at all. I want the individual PCs to have their own secure folders for backup and various work that only the user and admin can access. I have each of the folders set up as a mapped drive.
I’ve created secure folders with full privileges granted to the user and admin. However, when trying to access these folders from the main PC (whether accessing via Windows Explorer or via the WD Anywhere Backup) I get the following error message after it asks me to login:
"MYBOOK-WORK\Foldername is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
Multiple connections to a server or shared resources by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again." This is a Windows message but not sure why it’s active in my case or how to get rid of it.
I’ve tried logging off and on as well as restarting the PC with the same results. I’ve tried the user names and passwords for every different user I’ve authorized. No luck.
So, to recap:
I need to have my automated backups placed in a secure folder accessible only to the user (and admin) rather than the public folder.
The MyBook is currently preventing me from accessing any secured folder with the Windows shared resources error.
Any help would be appreciated. Having a backup that includes financial data personal information etc in the public folder and accessible by anyone on the network is not intelligent.
