I – Problem; While Creating RTRR CIFS Backup, It Seems Ok, But Qnap Backup Doesnt Starts?

Problem;

Trying to get RTRR to work with a windows 10 share

i can connect and copy files etc to the same share via file manager using cifs (MS Networking) which is great but no use for a backup

but if i use the RTRR and the same credentials as file manager it always fails to connect – also the test connection dialog gives varying results depending on what you put as the directory name sometimes pass mostly fail – even when you get a pass it cannot see the shares on the remote target or makes one up!

So what am i doing wrong or is this a bug or a glitch with my setup?

If i choose ftp-rtrr it works
