New user and trying to learn...
My destination drive contains a folder named "C".

Within the "C" folder are all my backed up folders.
Why are the backed up folders in the "C" folder? Something I 'did' or 'did not do'?
Thanks in advance,
Al

Hi,
That is a default destination, you need to change it.

Open Backup Properties (Ctrl+P) - > Destination.

Select another destination folder on another drive.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html

Aha... thank you
As a suggestion, it might be helpful to folks like me using FB for the first time to put a little 'blurb' under the folder box to indicate the default, etc....

Hi,
Many computers have only one drive (C:). The destination used is an external drive which might not be connected at that time.
