I am trying to setup Windows Server Backups in Server 2012R2 My script didn't work, so started troubleshooting from the very bottom. My backup target is a DLink NAS drive with shared folder (full anonymous access and also tried setting up a dedicated user) Source to back up is a small folder on drive C From Server Backup manager -> Backup Once, add my folder to items to backup, point to \\Volumes_1 Click backup, goes trough initial motion and the fails with error: "The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file"

Server backup runs perfect to local drive or another windows share. –  Alex May 7 '14 at 11:18
