How to properly format Storage.StorePath to a network mounted drive

OS Name/Version: windows 11

Product Name/Version: 2.3.2

Problem Description:

what is the proper format for Storage.StorePath?
I have tried
/z/mc01 this just puts it in the C drive under a folder called Z
/z:/mc01 causes the instance to crash
Z:\mc01\ (and every other combination of this) causes: Unable to start backup

the drive path is “Z:\mc01” what is the format I need to make it back up to that?

also random suggestion, have you ever thought about implementing OneDrive or Google Drive backups in to amp. for easy and safe backups.

It needs to be a UNC path - \\server\\share\directory

that seems more promising but how would I go about giving it permissions?
do I need to give the amp user in Windows permissions(if so how?) or do I need to give everybody permissions on the NAS?

edit: just tried to use the public folder and that doesn’t work either
