Fbackup procedure in a new PC

Postby ccunha » Fri Feb 23, 2018 10:44 pm

I use Fbackup since Fbackup 4 saving files from a large F external drive to a network drive (mirror backup).
Now I have a new PC (windows 10) with a different configuration and the external drive letter is "I" instead of "F".
The external drive and the network drive remains the same.
The full backup take several hours , but the incremental backup take only a few hours to update the backup every month.

If a run Fbackup in the new machine (PC) will it considered the files that are already saved in the network disk (adding only the new files) or it will make a completely new full backup?
How should I address this case?

Thank you

Carlos Cunha

If the source drive letter is changed, all files will be backed up again.
In such a case, you should assign the F drive letter to your external drive, in order for FBackup to detect the sources as being the same.
