Volumes and Drive Letters

Recommended Posts

The way that Retrospect deals with Volumes and Drive Letters can make using removable drives very awkward, and it is not consistent between systems.

 

On some systems, different drives mounted on the same drive letter are considered different volumes, even if they have been configured with the same name.

 

On other systems, all drives mounted with the same drive letter are assigned to the same Volume. This is the ideal situation and makes using removable drives much easier.

 

Why do some drives show up as different Volumes, even though they are mounted on the same drive letter? Can you please make Retrospect view all drives on the same drive letter as the same volume?

What do you mean by "systems" in this context?

 

Different hard drives connected to the same drive letter are (in fact) different hard drives. Why would they be treated as the same one? I don't understand what you want to achieve.
