This has been an issue i've had since at least Vista / 7 / and still on Windows 8, probably happened on XP also.
The issue has to do with drive letters of devices I remove and plug back in. Now obviously if you unplug something and something else takes a drive letter the next time you plug something in and if that other device still has it's drive letter it will get a new one, I get that.
But what I don't get, is if it plug something into my sata dock. Like a drive with the drive volume Offsite 11 and I go into manage and give it the drive letter B: . Now no other device has ever had drive letter B.
Sometimes when I put it back in back into the dock it keeps the drive letter B: ... other times it grabs a random drive letter. That's annoying because I have my syncback pointing all of it's backups to B. So then when it doesn't grab the correct drive letter I have to go back in and manual change it.
Has any one else had this issue?
I tell ya, these talks are so productive.
Thanks to macstar I looked it up and syncback SE (not free version) and Pro do support serial numbers and labels. Although I couldn't get serials to work it kept saying couldn't find the drive. BUT I was able to get the labels to work, which is all I need.
Source %LABEL=offsite 1-1%\
I think my problem is fixed!
