Problem with copying backup to network feature

I get "Folder does not exist" no matter what I've tried. I'm using the same local admin login/pwd on each server for the service as directed if not using domain accounts. The login is a local admin and remote desktop user.

Has anyone had issues like this and if so were you able to resolve? thanks

    Have you checked the permissions on the folder itself? Have you turned on sharing? and specified the UNC path (e.g. //mymachine/myfolder/).

    When copying to a network share, SQL Backup uses the SQL Backup Agent service startup user credentials to access the network share. Does that user have read/write access to your network share?
