Acronis TI2012

A pictures worth a thousand words, two Skydrive links showing what I mean,

Every time I go to create a backup task the drive thats always offered is a small USB nano memory that I use for ready boost. Is there any way to make "D" the drive that Acronis uses by default ?

From reading the "embedded" user manual I suspect it may not be possible but thought I would ask. The manual just says,
"2. Select a destination for backup (you can leave the default destination when it suits you or browse for a destination after clicking the down arrow to the right of the current destination and selecting Browse...)."

no mention is made of changing the default location permanently.

Mooly,
While the default location cannot be changed, the user is NOT forced to use that location which lets the user store their backups in any folder and any drive they wish. User has the choice in where the backup location is set.

Refer examples in figures 6, 7, and 8 at this link

Hi Grover,
as you say the "default location" can't be changed and that was really what I wanted, something TI10 seems to manage without difficulty (once you've picked a location it remembers it). I know its only a couple of clicks to open the drop down and select the required drive but with so much customizable in Acronis this seems (to me) a strange oversight.

thanks
