Changing Drive Letters for continuity in Crashplan Backups

Sometimes my USB HDD letter changes and this causes me backup headaches with Crashplan.

I haven’t taken time to look at the root cause of the issue, but I have found the work around for this and this is it!

  1. Open a cmd window
  2. Type: diskmgmt.msc
  3. right click on the drive you want to modify and select
    1. ‘Change Drive Letters and Path’
  4. Select and change the drive letter

I hope this helped!


Keep learning!
