I set up a backup folder on my samba server today but I am not able to
configure it to accept scheduled backups from the Win XP backup utility.
I have coated a backup profile on my XP machine and set the backup path to
the Samba directory. When I try to run the backup I get the error:
"The Backup file name could not be used:
Please ensure it is a valid path and that you have sufficient access"
I am able to browse the directory just fine so I think it might be a
permissions issue between the Backup utility and Samba or that it is logging
in using a different username.
