I have two related questions about using a NAS drive for backup. (I've already emailed tech support twice re question #1 but I never got a response):
1) Some time ago I created a backup to my Network Drive ("WD MyBook Live") using an earlier version of AOMEI. (I cannot remember the version number but it did not have a scheduler and I had installed it in May of this year.)
I did not do any more backups since.
More recently I upgraded AOMEI to version 1.6 (20mb version). I then logged on to my NAS drive (where I can see the old backup from May in Windows) and went back into AOMEI and attempted to run an Incremental backup. However I keep getting the error "Failed to connect to the destination due to incorrect path." The problem is that I don't see any options to correct the path anywhere within the user interface.
How do I reset the path to my original backup?
2) Because I was having the problems above, I tried to start another, NEW backup. This time I followed the instructions to use a NAS drive (which I may not have done for the initial backup referred to above). However, AOMEI insists on providing an IP address to access the drive, rather than a path name such as " \\MYBOOKLIVE\User\Backups. " The problem with this is that the IP address for my NAS drive can change if my home router gets reset (I've already had this happen) which, I'm assuming would be a problem for any further backups. Using a path name would appear to be a better option.
Each of the above methods seems to cause me problems, so until there's a solution I'm using a direct connect USB drive.
Has anyone got any suggestions or should I wait to see if this gets addressed in a future version?
