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

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.

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.
