Backup to Folder

I have a customer that has 8 USB Drives, they use 1 on Thursday and 1 on Friday, this gets changed for 4 weeks then rotates.

These USB Drives are off-site full backups and they have a NAS for Daily backups anyway.

The problem I have is using a Disk backup stratagy does not work. when you format the drive it then complains that the drive letter ( E for example) is already in use (USB Week X ( 1 - 4) Thursday or Friday)

In backup exec 2010 we had E: WK(1-4) Thursday or Friday.

How can I get round this other then setting each drive to a different letter?

Ie.

     NEW                                                                                   OLD

e: = Week 1 Thursday   (Drive 1)                             "e:\Week 1 Thursday"   (Drive 1)     

f: = Week 1 Friday     (Drive 2)                                 "e:\Week 1 Friday"     (Drive 2)

g: = Week 2 Thursday    (Drive 3)                            "e:\Week 2 Thursday"    (Drive 3)

h: = Week 2 Friday  (Drive 4)                                   "e:\Week 2 Friday"  (Drive 4)
