I set Crashplan to back up my data to my external hard-drive, which was listed as G:/ at the time. Unfortunately, the computer would assign that letter to whatever drive was connected first on any given day, so occasionally the USB drive would end up being G:/, and Crashplan would try and use it as a backup location until it filled up completely.
I tried to be clever and get around this issue by assigning the letter Z:/ to the hard-drive, and telling Crashplan to back up there instead. This worked fine at first - Crashplan resynced, and I could back up to and restore data from the drive.
Unfortunately, something isn't working anymore. Crashplan keeps telling me that the backup location is unavailable, despite the fact that the hd is plugged in, Crashplan is set to backup to the correct folder ( Z > 489443350473650708) and I can open the folder just fine, so I don't think it's the hd that's the problem.
I really need the data from the hd. What could be the problem, and how can I fix it?
I've tried assigning G to the hd again and telling Crashplan to go to G > 489443350473650708 instead, but that didn't work, either, it still tells me the backup location is unavailable.
