I've only just begun trying out Versions 12.5 and 14 after acquiring a couple of 64 bit machines. With version 11. I was able, with no issues, to do a backup to a small network server equipped with a couple of USB drives , both, mapped as drives on the machine (Windows XP pro). Using version 12.5 on A Windows 8.1 machine, I have mapped the same drives in Windows Explorer, however...when i go to do a backup, those drives do not show as available destinations. I can click on Network, and after a few minutes the server will appear. I click on it and after a few more minutes, the two USB drives appear. Click on one of them and after an even longer delay, the files on the drive appear. At this point I can do a backup. Why in the world is there such a delay? I could go for coffee in the total time it takes to be able to do a backup. Why don't the mapped network drives not appear as available backup options as they did in version 11 since they are drives the the PC is aware of? I haven't tried this with version 14, yet. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
