I installed the SmartWare while plugged into my network. That’s the only way the SmartWare would find the drive. When I was connected wirelessly, it wouldn’t find it. I “mapped” it to the letter Z:.
When I go to My Computer, the drive can be found under my “Network Places” and shows to still be called Z:, however I can’t set up wireless backups to the drive. The SmartWare won’t recognize the drive as soon as I unplug my computer and go wireless. I also can’t use Windows Backup Utility because it says I don’t have access (this may be purely my fault, I am a recent upgrader to Win7, I have Win7 professional and try to back up to a network location, and give my Windows acct/pw, tried my MyBook admin login/pw, but both times the backup failed with access denied).
What advice do you guys have for me to be able to wirelessly backup my drive? Is there some setting I should check first that might be preventing this? I am using DHCP mode for the drive, FWIW.
