    I'm trying to backup to a hidden network share, that'll look something like this:


    When the backup starts, it immediately errors out with an entry in the log that says the password for \\earth\d$\Backup\MCE.tib is incorrect.

    Now, that's impossible, because the MCE.tib file never existed. And the password I protect my new image with, they must match, otherwise the advanced options screen will tell me. And the password to the network share itself must be correct, otherwise I can't browse it. And yes, with the explorer, I can browse that share perfectly fine. And I can write new files to it.

    What's going on?

    Using TrueImage 9 on Windows XP MCE.
