Working with multiple external HD

Recommended Posts

This may have been covered before, I just can't find any specific reference...

 

Working with multiple external hard drives, what is the best way to configure the backup sets?

 

Details:

We have a number of external hard disks that we intend to rotate. There is always just one hard disk attached, which is assigned drive E: by Windows.

 

When we want to add members to a backup set, Retrospect always complains that it cannot find a specific set. I assume that this is because we are always using drive E: and Retrospect thinks that it should have a backup folder on it.

 

Question:

What is the configuration we need to set up in Retrospect to use with rotating external hard drives?

 

Thanks for any help!

Don't let Windows assign the drive letter, E: in *every* case for you. Assign unique drive letters (usually easier further in the alphabet, R, S, T, U, ...) so that each of your removable HDs will have a unique letter when it's brought back on-line.
