    The file backup software (Control Panel -> Backup and Restore Center ->
    Create backup copies of your files and folders) can't connect to a disk on an
    Apple Extreme 802.11n base station. The error dialog reads "The network
    share could not be accessed for the following reason: The parameter is
    incorrect. (0x80070057)"

    The Airport is set up with a disk password, airport disks guest access is
    not allowed, and it has a workgroup name.

    The odd part of this is that I can map the disk from both the command line
    and via the Windows Explorer Tools -> Map Network Drive menu item.
    Unfortunately the backup interface requires that the network drive be
    specified as a UNC path and will not accept the mapped drive letter.

    Any suggestions?

    Airport Extreme 802.11n, Version 7.3.1
    Windows Vista Business Edition, SP1
