In a major revamping of my pc, I changed all the drive letters. For example, the Photography partition is now drive H: instead of L:. When I next went to back up the photography partition, AISB was still trying to backup L when all the photo files were in H. I looked in job settings for a way to change the letter of the drive being backed up but didn't find anything. Do I have to recreate the job with the new drive letter and re-do the whole backup, or is there a way to fix this so AISB associates the new drive letter with the existing job?
I'm using Windows 8.1 and AISB 4.2.0.459.
Thanks

For major changes like this and if the directory structure is exactly the same use the Manage Backup / Backup Maintenance option, in the left hand pane right click the drive that is to be moved and choose Move Folder To New Drive.
