Issue 1
You receive a “Document not saved” error message when you try to use a Microsoft Office application to save a document to the remote server.

Issue 2
You cannot use the built-in backup utility to save backup files to the remote server. For example, you cannot save backup files to the remote server when you use NTBackup in Windows XP or in Windows Server 2003.

Issue 3
