Retrospect does not see Airport Express disk - how to fix?


Recommended Posts

I have an Apple Airport Express with an attached hard disk that is used for both Time Capsule backup and as a file server. I want to use it as a place to put file based retrospect backup sets.

 

I can not get retrospect to see it. It shows up in the finder and is visible to normal Mac applications.

 

I am running Retrospect 8.1.148 and OS X 10.5.7. Can someone provide some help? I have tried using the "Add Share" option and using the "afp://xxxx/" and "smb://xxxx/" options and I get a -530 error.

 

Thanks

That worked. Just to clarify because the various names are confusing, I did the following:

 

smb://ip-address-of-router/top-level-folder-name/

 

The actual name of shared disk as it shows up in the finder is not needed - instead one wants a top level folder which is one level down.

 

Thanks.
