I would like to backup files and keep their file path short. What do I mean? Let’s say I’m backuping up “My Documents” to my usb drive on F:
I would like the file path on the f: drive to be short, such as:

F:\my documents\ then a listing of the files backed up, however, the actual path when I back up on f is: f:\My Documents\c\users\regor\My Documents
This is not what I want and I’ve played with the program to try to get it how I want it, but have failed.

Please open Backup Properties->Mirror.

Uncheck the "Create full paths" option.

Press Save and run again the backup.

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