Windows 7 ultimate network Backup and restore problems

hello all. I am hoping someone here can help me. i am loosing it trying to get my backup and restore function to work from network. I have my external 1.5tb drive set to my desktop. i have all permissions and owners set to everyone. with all boxes checked. i can view this drive fine from my laptop. can access folders drag folders over no issues. i even made a complete backup on another drive and placed it on my external 1.5 of my laptop. seems every time i try to do a system backup to my external via my network it fails. i keep getting error 0x80070005 from what i see means access restriction. all my computers are part of my homegroup. when i setup location it asked me for credentials i just basically used my laptop name and password. as my desktop main pc of homegroup has no password. could this be issue? im not understanding how to setup with proper credential. can anyone help . i have tried another forum but all i get is links to google from those member. i have done and tried everything i come across to get this functioning correctly. it always fails around 91%.

Homegroup has connectivity issues on some networks (especially older multi OS networks) You should try workgroup as it uses IPv4 and is more stabile.
