Windows 11 backup location is not accessible

I have problem what I had in Windows 10 too. It seems this problem wasn`t resolved. I setup Windows backup to network location. All is working well and backing up working. The problem is when I click on "Manage spaces". It open new window and I see this

When I click on "Enter credentials" and type username and password (yes it is right, even if I choose higher privileges account) nothing is changed.

    Hi @Martin Hubka

    You can fix the inaccessible drive by adding an authenticated user or by taking ownership of the drive.

    You can also use the CHKDSK Command to sort this issue.

    • Open the CMD as admin.
      -Enter the following command: chkdsk e: /f /r /x. ("e" means the drive letter of the partition you want to repair)
    • After the process, shut down the window. Try to access the drive again.

    Below threads discusses the same issue and you can try out some troubleshooting steps from this and see if that helps you to sort the Issue.

    The mounted backup volume is inaccessible

    Hope this resolves your Query!!
