problems backing up a windwos networked computer

Recommended Posts

SO I keep getting the same errors for five files when backing up this Windows XP unit to my Mac's external HD. I know teh pdf file can be opened on both the mac and the pc, so I can't figure out why this error keeps showing up. Any ideas? Here is the error log:

Come to think of it: How do you backup the PC? Do you mount the shared drive on the Mac's desktop? You should instead use the Retrospect PC client on the PC.


If you DO need to mount the shared PC drive on the Mac's desktop, you should use the administrator user on the PC. As such, the administrator has read/write access to ALL files.
