All 3 PC's are visible on all 3 PC's via the Homegroup in Windows Explorer. I can browse/copy/write files on all 3. All sweet. All 3 can print to the 2 Printers connected to the Desktop.

Laptop A is configured to Backup using the Windows 7 Backup to the Desktop. This works fine.
Laptop B however when trying to backup to the desktop I get an error message after I have selected the Drive in the setup screen and I've entered my username/password credentials

The error code is 0x80070043

I've tried everything and I'm quite experienced.

Both laptops for all intents and purposes are identical.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would bet its a uid/password problem because that error is an un-able to connect message. Its here Unable to connect to server...error code 0x80070043

Have you tried connecting without firewall, and or password. Browser and copy may be ok on one port and backup maynot on another.

Could we get some more info ab the networking setup, ie wep/wpa, shares, etc.

Hope this helps
