SBSE not seeing serial #

Post by vincenzo »

SBSE could not prepare the destination as it normally does. I see the drive letter has changed.

But when I click "Alternate" it does not see the serial # of the external drive so that I can configure it to use that.

The drive is a My Passport Ultra 1 TB. Any ideas what I can do?

Thanks

I have changed the destination letter in SBSE, but I'd like to be able to use serial #.

Hi,

If you know the serial (e.g. by using the command prompt's DIR or VOL command) then you can enter the destination path yourself like this:
%SERIAL=FBD6-3287%\PathToDestination\


Essentially you will be replacing the drive letter and the colon (e.g. C:) with the serial number %SERIAL=FBD6-3287%

Thanks,

Are the words "PathToDestination" required?

Thanks

Hi,

It was just an example. Replace "PathToDestination" with your actual destination path within the drive, e.g.
%SERIAL=FBD6-3287%\Folder1\Folder2\

If your destination is the root of the drive then just use the serial, e.g.
%SERIAL=FBD6-3287%\

Thanks,
Kostas
