Backup Set names - can they safely be changed?


Recommended Posts

When I create new Backup Sets, I am prevented from entering a name longer than 20 characters. Surprisingly, this rather irritating limitation does not appear to be documented. The User's Guide tells me that a CD/DVD Backup Set name cannot be changed, but 'File' Backup Sets can be renamed with Windows Explorer.


Is it totally safe to rename a Backup Set? Would a Disaster Recovery CD based on the original Backup Set name still work with a renamed version of that Backup Set?
