TI 2014 Home: How to stop it from creating folders for all my backups on new backup drive?
How can I stop TIH 2014 from creating empty folders at startup for all my backup jobs on every new backup drive I attach?
I rotate my backups between 5 portable USB drives. Disks 1 - 5.
When I create a new backup with Acronis I give it a name like Laptop_Disk 1, or Laptop_Disk 2, etc.
So I have 5 backup jobs listed in my Acronis "home page" and I run whichever one corresponds to the portable drive attached.
But every time I attach one of the portable drives and start up TIH, Acronis creates a folder on the drive for ALL my backups I have ever done, so every one of my disks now has a folder for all my backups; I keep deleting the empty ones, but they get automatically created again. All I want on each backup drive is just the folder for that backup, eg., DISK 1 should only have a folder called Laptop_Disk_1. How can I stop Acronis from always creating all the folders at startup on any new drive? This is a constant source of irritation.
(My example is a simplification; in fact I rotate disks round robin through multiple computers, so in fact I end up with something like 20 empty folders on each disk for all my backups on all my computers....)
I am hoping there is a simple setting somewhere to stop this behavior...
