    I'm using TrueImage 8.x, and I changed my settings so that I do a nightly incremental backup to a different external hard drive than the one originally scheduled.

    Well, it does the image backup to the new drive, but it also continues backing up to the original drive, which I don't want it to do.

    I can't find any way of stopping this from happening.
