I am trying to robocopy data from my laptop to the NAS and when i map the drive, i can access files with Windows Explorer. However, When i open a command prompt and type Z:, it doesn’t show up. It just says “The System cannot find the drive specified”.
It’s a Windows 10 laptop. When i first map the drive, it seems to show up at the command prompt, but when i try to robocopy, it then tells me it can’t find the drive or destination and when i type Z: again or net use, it shows no drive.
I was able to run robocopy 1 time when i first got it a few weeks ago and was trying to update some files that needed to be backed up.
I have Microsoft Windows Network set as my primary network in Provider order and everything is hard-wired.
I have a Windows 7 desktop that seems to be ok and retain the Z: drive in the command prompt, but i can’t run robocopy from it, because my USB ports are bad and my laptop is all i can use to copy it up.
I am going to try another laptop that i have, that is not Windows 10, to see if it makes a difference.
I also noticed that after running for a week, the Sharename on the NAS became unresponsive, so i had to reboot it. The reboot didn’t help with getting the Z: drive to stay up on the command line or net use on the laptop, so i am pretty sure it is a configuration issue with the laptop or windows 10.
I don’t suppose there is a way to plug the drive into the NAS directly and access the USB from a remote computer? I need to run a Robocopy mirror command from it, to keep the data the same.
