For the life of me I can't get Bvckup to connect to a network share. I've tried mapping the path to a mapper drive letter, double and quadruple verified my credentials, etc. The path is valid whether I use network name (SMB), IP address, or mapped drive letter. It's browseable when added via the 'browse...' button in Bvckup. But when I run the backup it always says -
Error: destination device is missing/Failed to get destination path details
If I add in login credentials (forced) I get -
GetPathAttributes() failed with 58
Why can I not connect?

You need to use an explicit network path rather than a mapped drive, because of this https://bvckup2.com/support/forum/topic/531
- the top Q of the FAQ for several years running.
If the program runs in service mode, you will also need to make sure that "Bvckup 2 Service" user account has appropriate network access permissions.
As per  error 58 stands for "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation". FWIW it's not an error I've ever seen before and I've seen plenty of errors.

It wasn't working from an explicit UNC path either, I just tried the drive mapping. I changed the service to use my personal admin account, it's running now. Thanks!
