I had the same problem,
I set my MSSII to back up my windows XP computer daily, the Maxtor tray always showed it’s green “M” icon with a “backup complete!” tag,
But when I went into the Maxtor drive none of the files had been backed up since the first manual run!
So I went into the back-up log saved at “C:\Users\All Users\Maxtor\MSS\log” and found that it said “Destination is not accessible” under the date of every single back-up.
I did find the problem and solution that worked for me, Try it and see if it solves your problem:
-You must be logged into your Maxtor network account before the scheduled backup is to start for the backup to succeed.
Click on the Maxtor icon under My Computer, It should ask for your network username and password, enter it and it should come up with the Maxtor folder,
Now run your back-up and it should succeed!
-If you want your computer to log into the network drive automatically on start-up you need to do this:
1. Create a new text document on your desktop and open it.
2. Paste this text into it:
net use <drive>: "\\<maxtor name>\<account name>" <account password> /USER:"<account username>"
So if I fill this in to my one it looks like this:
net use Z: "\\MAXTOR\john" johnpassword /USER:"OFFICE\john"
You must get this text correct with the correct paths and user-names and passwords for it to work.
3. Re-name the text file to MAXTOR.bat (change the .txt to .bat when “show known file type extensions” is un-ticked under windows folder options)
4. Drag this new file into the Start menu, all programs, start-up folder.
This should now log into the network drive on start-up and automatic back-ups should work (check “C:\Users\All Users\Maxtor\MSS\log” to confirm.
