Force backup to see mounted drives RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running vista home premium and I want to backup to a mounted truecrypt drive.  Vista will not let me do this, it keeps wanting me to backup to my external, unencrypted, hard drive.


    How can I basically get the vista backup tool to backup to the drive letter I want, instead of the ones it choses (my dvd writer and external hard drive).  I do not have the wbadmin tool since i don't have vista ultimate, so that is obviously not an option for me...nor am i interested in a complete system backup....I just want it to back up my docs and settings the way the regular backup tool has....but i want it to go to a different drive letter


    Please someone help me out here...there has to be a good way to do this.  I do not want to backup to the unencrypted volume, then have to copy it to the encrypted volume, then have to wipe the old files sectors....it's a big hassle.
