How do I change drive letter of Destination drive without recreating all backup jobs, catalog files, and ini files from scratch?


Thanks...

Hi,


You cannot do that with FBackup, you can do that only in Backup4all, our commercial edition. If interested about how you can do that in Backup4all, please visit out forum there and also our knowledgebase.

So if I really needed to change the drive letter, I would have to delete all backup jobs, catalog, and ini files, and rebuild the backup system with the new drive letter?


Is it better to just uninstall FBackup and reinstall it?


If I did an uninstall of FBackup, does that delete the catalog and ini files on the C drive, or must those still be done manually?


Thank you.

Hi,


The backup jobs and settings are not deleted when you reinstall FBackup.

Doing that won't solve your problem.

With FBackup, you need to create a new backup job and back up all files again.
