Problem with network credentials

Post by lockon »

I use SynBack to backup to a Synology Diskstation. The share where the backup is destined is R/O to the 'admin' user (same username as the domain controller but Synology is not on the domain). The synology account with R/W is 'backup'. When I configure the network credentials in the SynBack profile and click 'Test Connection' I get "Success!". I also have selected the 'Use the supplied username ...' option under Network|Advanced.

However, when the scheduled backup runs, I get the error "Access is denied" in the log... If I change the 'admin' account to R/W on the Synology and everything completes as expected... seems like SyncBack is ignoring the 'Use the supplied username ..." option?

Thank you
