Windows 7: Trying to Save System Image on Network Folder ???

I think I finally got it sorted.
I tried several approaches on three other machines, even changing the target folder to various different drives, all with the same result --- path does not exist.
Instead of clicking Network or NAS/Share and trying to navigate that way, I finally clicked Computer over in the left margin and among the options it gave me was my mapped network drive; I clicked that and it accepted it and it is now in the process of creating the back-up.

This is a glitch that AOMEI needs to fix or at least provide some useful instructions; if it is not going to accept a path that is perfectly legitimate, it should not allow one to navigate that path in the browse dialogue.

I have about pulled my hair out trying to get this sorted.

Thank you samuria for suggesting that I create a mapped network drive.
