UNC file path backups
UNC paths work for backups but not in removing old backup files.
Although you can use a UNC path to backup to a remote server under a service account with rights to access the remote drive. You cannot use the maintenance cleanup task to remove dated backup files using UNC paths.
When creating the path for the folder selection it gives the following error yet it work fine for the backup task.
Cannot access the specified path or file on the server. Verify that you have the necessary security privileges and that the path or file exists.
If you know that the service account can access a specific file, type in the full path for the file in the File Name control in the Locate dialog box.
The backups run fine with the UNC path \webreports\backup\current\ but the maintenance cleanup tasks fails�
