I have to wonder: what is specifically meant by "does not work"?

Put in an UNC path as backup location.
It won't take it. it only accepts paths with a Drive letter,

make the button for "Save file in folder" in the "backup file" group write open a File Open dialog box rather than a directory browser dialog box. (or both)

Customer comment: (I confirm this one)
Browsing for network path only works if you are on the same network and if it is all windows. That is why the unc name is so important
