I cannot get a computer to map to the network drive allowing the user to backup to drive Z. We are running on Windows 98. I get an error message when trying to do this. It says "the computer or sharename could not be found." I have other computers on the network that are able to backup to the same drive. I cannot find any info. as to why this computer will not map. Please help.

What network protocols are you using on the PC that cannot map? Does the host PC and peer both have file and printer sharing installed?

Can you see the remote resource on the host you are trying to map to? Right click the folder and select map network drive.
