I need to reformat my laptop and reinstall windows however I have the following very important question:

I currently have a backup job which saves a mirror backup from one external hard drive to another.

When I reinstall windows, how can I reconfigure Fbackup so that I will not have to re-do the whole backup process from one drive to another? i.e. I want to to recognize that the two drives are already backed up and just continue as normal with only backing up changed files.

After you reinstall Windows, you need to reinstall FBackup and open from backup destination the .fkc catalog files. The backup jobs will be automatically recreated in FBackup.

If the source files are changed, they will be backed again. If the source files are not changed, they won't be backed up again.
