(1) I currently have disk M: where I backup my files to.
(2) I have a new larger disk (currently I: and different label than M which I now want to use for my backup files.
I have no problem moving existing backup files to the new disk with SSR, but the caveat is that when done I want to change M: to say Z: and then change I: to M: The reason is, of course, that I want my backup drive to continue to be drive letter M: with my new backup drive.
What would be the best way to do this without causing the backup files to be orphaned.
Thanks for the help -- David
Use the following KB to move the backup destination -
Once done, disconnect M:\ drive and then change the drive letter of the I:\ to M:\
Lastly, you may have to edit the backup job just to make sure it is targetted to the right storage.
