Shared Volume on NAS (disk backup) reporting differently then when drive is mapped (file backup)

Recommended Posts

I am running Retrospect Professional 7.6.123 on WinXP Pro. I am trying to backup 3 PCs to a Netgear ReadyNas NV+.

 

When I configure the Backup Set as Disk for volume \\ceunas\backup, the total space reported is 7.9 G.

 

When I configure the Backup Set as File and use V:\, which is mapped to \\ceunas\backup, the total space is 684 G.

 

I did check other volumes (i.e. \\ceunas\forms) and had the same result.

 

Besides curiosity, I wouldn't normally care except that the File backup through the mapped drive seems slower than the Disk backup with UNC access. Why?

 

[color:red]UPDATE: If I specify the IP address in the UNC the space reports correctly. (i.e. \\192.168.1.5\backup)[/color]
