    I have a script which I want to run, to make sure that the network drive is available to Paragon when writing to the drive.

    I have entered a path to the script in the options box.

    When it runs a timed backup, it fails.

    I see the command window open, so I know that the Paragon Program is picking up the script - it just fails to map the drive.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    File below - extension renamed so I can upload it

    You may want to add: "cd C:\"

    The script may be running at the Programs folder

    Why not to use backup to unc path instead?
    Create the script then change the path to share in Edit Script menu.
    For example:
    img = "\\WIN2008R2\share/mybackup/arc_020512123549559_$(YEAR)_$(MONTH)$(DAY).pbf"
    Save the changes and the backup must run without need to be mapped to drive letter.
