If using full paths, the whole information about the backed up files is saved. For example

E:\test\text.txt will be saved in the archive as e\test\test.txt (if I recall it correctly)

if using VSC then e will be substituted by

GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy1\test\test.txt", which is the actual position of the file that is being backing up.

I really don't remember but I think this only happens when compressing, not with uncompressed backups.

Thanks for replying.

I saw your post about not maintaining anymore so I guess that's that for now!
