Re: Binding to a flash drive

Hello!

You could use the %DISKLABEL parameter (see the help file under the Parameter link) to dynamically set the destination folder. You need then to be sure that your flash drives uses some unique drive label.

Re: Deleting old backups

The first backup will always get "parked" by default to prevent the program to delete it. This can be disabled at Options-Engine-First backup parked

Re: Differential backup - deleted missing source files

I *think* that is by design. The two files (the original and the created one) are not longer equal, so if you delete the original, there is no equal file to delete at the destination.

Re: Full backup job not overwriting old backups

If Create separated backups is unchecked, old backups will never get deleted (this option is only active when separated backups are used).

Re: Sorting Issue

Oh yes, that will be the case. The names are not identical so the rule here is: the one with the extra character (the space) gets sorted last.
