    I have just jumped from TI 2010 to 2012 so I am slowly creeping up the learnig curve.

    When I use Smart Backup and get to the Destination screen Smart Backup always offers my C: drive as the destination. I have to bore down through My Computer to get to my external drive (X:) and then to folder I always want
    my archives put.

    Is there a way I can make Smart Backup to default to X:\My Backups? Or, is there a better way to do unscheduled Full backups that will default my desired location?

    Thank you very much.

    I do full unscheduled and I am not aware of the program remembering the last location. It would be convenient if it did and other programs like Acronis do remember.

    You probably could write a script that would accommodate this but I don't want to bother with that exercise and just continue to click to the location.

    In my case, the backup location changes from one backup operation to the next, because I use two different external USB disks alternatively. So, a "remembering" function wouldn´t be useful to me.

    Yes, create the backup as a scheduled backup, and configure it as a 'One Time' operation, it will save to your scheduler and when you want to run it, you can simply right-click on the task and choose to run now.

    Thank you very much. Creating a task but not scheduling it will sure work.

    Thanks again.
