You’re crazy to backup using drive letters

Maybe other windows or mac backup apps do this automatically/silently when you select drives by their drive-letter or via some file-select dialog box, but I don’t think SyncBack does (from experience!)

Luckily, you can set backups using Serial Numbers like this

For example, if your external drive has a serial number of ABCD-EFGH then you could set your source or destination to:

%SERIAL=ABCD-EFGH%\backup\

(This is maybe only of some importance to people with external drives…?)
