Hmm. I guess we'll keep banging our heads against it. We didn't have
a trailing slash. I don't think we had any spaces in at least one of
our BackupLocations (not sure if it matters).
We noticed that, due to some kind of permissions issue) we had read,
but not write, access to the remote directory (the z:\files directory,
e.g.)--that shouldn't matter, should it?
All this discussion in the context of Ben's warning that missing
network drives will be marked for deletion, and presumably force a
complete reupload of the entire remote BackupLocation when the remote
filesystem comes back on line.
