Hi,

When creating a new backup job, you can change the default path which includes the "My FBackup" folder.
You can also change the destination folder if you open Backup Properties->Destination.

Please explain why the My Files (Victor-HP) folder is created? It seems like it is a duplicate of the A and C folders that are updated when I do each backup.

How can I stop this folder from being created and taking up space on my backup drive if it is not necessary?

Hi,

Please send me the last backup log to info[at]fbackup[dot]com, to see where that folder appears.
