Cannot Backup Files From Another Networked PC
I am using Norton 360 v 184.108.40.206 and run Windows 10 Pro.
My problem is I cannot use Backup in Norton 360 on my PC to backup any files on my son's laptop.
His files are stored on his laptop in a shared folder. I have read/write access to the folder, being able to open all files from my PC. From my PC I can create a file and save to his laptop.
I had no problem finding the folder when adding it to the backup set and it appears in the list as \sons pc\school\
Prior to running the backup my son's PC is on and, on my PC I have accessed his school folder in Window's Explorer, typing my username and password. In Windows Explorer I can see the files on his laptop from my PC.
After I run the backup I click the 'View Details' link and none of the files on my son's PC have been backed up.
I tried creating a dedicated backup set, just for my son's files (no files from my PC) and it ran saying that all files had previously been backed up, which I found kind of odd.
I then created a new test file on my son's laptop, re-ran the backup and no files were backed up.
If anyone knows what I am doing wrong or, what I am not doing, please let me know.
