I am backing up one external drive to another external drive (using a mirror backup so only when changes occur). Typically I have done this from a desktop computer in one location, where the external drive letters are always the same when I plug in, and I have no problems. I am now using another desktop computer. When I plug in the external drives they come up as different drive letters (I know I can change these around however). I would like to continue the mirror backup from the one external drive to the other again. Can this be done? Would I need to change the drive letters to that of the previous backup, or will I have to delete the backup and run it again as it is run through another computer?
Thanks in advance

You need to change the letter for that drive from Windows.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
