Specifying Drive on which to run RR

RR has option to backup to an external hard drive. However, I somehow can not get it to backup to the drive I want. Option list USB external hard drive and 2nd USB external hard drive. However, I have 3 external hard drives. Every time I defaults to another drive. The only way I can drive it to a particular drive is by dismounting the other 2. Can you please tell me how I can designate whether it should go to d, g or h drive.

 

PS I posted two issues a couple of years ago and I see nobody ever responded to them. Don't know what I am doing wrong that it is not getting any attention. Please advise. Thanks

Re: Specifying Drive on which to run RR

R&R wasn't designed with 3 external drives in mind.  My advice would be to unplug all but one of the external drives when you want to take a backup with R&R, or else find some other backup software that doesn't have this problem.  Sorry to have not have any better idea about this.

I can not believe that since that RR has not been modified over the years that 3 or  more disks are available

Good question! Now if you look closely you will notice a lot of old IBM code. Lenovo added the "Simplified R&R GUI"   a few years ago but if you look at the "Advanced R&R GUI" that's from the IBM days.

 

Even with its inherent quirks, it still is my backup utility of choice. I have found that all my recoveries are perfect  to the point that I quit using the Windows System Restore which can leave a mess behind. I do a backup once a week.
