Re: drive letter changed

I have just the one external hard drive. Connects to PC USB port, H drive.
Like I said, twice ran I invoke FBackup, it thought I was using a non-existent L drive and gave me the error message.

drive letter changed

I am running version 7.0.181. I back up my files onto an eternal hard drive F.
Today I got an error message that L drive does not exist. I don't even have a L drive.
I went back into Properties > Destination and change the drive back to F.
This happened to me once before. What might have caused this?

The user manual also needs an explanation of Fast Mirror.

FYI, here is Softland's explanation of "Copy files in a subfolder". You were correct!

What is the Mirror option "Copy files in a subfolder"?

Version 7.0.174 has the new Mirror option "Copy files in a subfolder". What is this? It is not explained in the version 7 users manual.

Re: Fast Mirror - what is it?

WOW, thanks for the head-up before I even install v7.0.174 ! Specifics of the options "Fast Mirror" and "Copy files in a subfolder" certainly need to be added to the user manual. In particular the Fast Mirror option needs to state that anything other than new or modified files will be deleted. I won...

Fast Mirror - what is it?

I see that version 7.0.174 added a Fast Mirror option to "copy only new or modified files". The version 7 user manual does not explain Fast Mirror.
How is this different from the Mirror option in previous versions? Didn't those versions copy only new or modified files?
