Keep in mind that BackupExec is running as a service. This effectively means it doesn't know what a 'mapped drive' is, since those only exist for a logged-in user. Because of this, you need to use the UNC path when adding a networked resource as a Backup-to-Disk folder.

E.g. use "\\SERVER\SHARE" instead of "N:\"
