    Today I tried to update my Archive and the archive copy didn't show in FDISR. The drive shows in my computer. I formatted the drive and tried to create a new archive. It wouldn't do that either. Help please. 1281 shows in the log.

    Did you check the options and make sure the options are pointing to the right drive.

    It is an external USB drive. I have been using it for several years. I had updated the archive 12-22-08. So everything was fine then.

    Like Peter said, are your Options pointing to the correct drive?

    Ok guys, you were right. For some reason the drive letter was changed. This I don't understand. I have 2 external drives. One is an external SATA drive that I Ghost an image to. It is supposed to be drive F. The Archive drive is a USB connected external drive. It is drive G. They have been set up this way a long time. They are only turned on when I am going to use one of them (one at a time). For some reason they were both showing up as F drive. How in the world did my Archive drive change from G to Fo_O?

    Sometimes plugging in another USB device or turning them on in different order can change the drive lettering.

    That was what happened. My wife bought a digital picture frame and downloaded pictures to it. I know now what to watch out for. Thank you all for the help.
