Cannot backup to a mapped drive

I have mapped the drive but when I will do the backup it says Cannot or invalid path
is this about rights?
Ensure to map the drive when you’re performing from the server and as a job ensure the SQL Agent has got required permission to complete the task. Always use UNC path rather than drive name. In general its suggested to perform a local backup and then copy file to the network drive. Satya SKJ
