When you have multiple removable/external drives that you connect to your computer one at a time, they could be assigned with the same drive letter in Windows. When the scheduler runs, Backup4all will automatically run the backup to the currently connected hard drive assigned with the selected drive letter. If you want to use only one drive for backups and the others for different projects, you need to make sure the backup won't be executed on the wrong hard drive connected at that time.

This article will explain how to perform this backup.
