Windows 7 Pro backup won't copy files to a USB network drive on a Windows 7 Ultimate machine. Network is set to "workgroup" on all 4 computers.

Windows backup on my Windows 7 Pro machines (3 machuines) finds my Windows 7 Ultimate machine's USB external drive, but doesn't recognize the previous backup files from the machines that were previously backed up with backup from Windows 7 Home Premium.    The Pro machine shows the backup starting and gets to the point of copying files to the network drive and fails.  The same results have happeded on two of the Pro machines.  I have tried a backup to the main drive on the Ultimate machine and it seems to be working fine.

 

Has anyone had the same experience?
