I have two WD external hard drives. I want to use one for the lightroom catalogue and photo storage and then back up to the second. To do this I need both plugged in at once.
I have assigned a new drive name to the first one (z drive). When I open the second one my system recognises it as the same thing. On its own the second one will open as Z drive too.
I have renamed the external drives but that does not make any difference. I have tried to rename the drive on the second one to drive W. The next time I put the lightroom catalogue drive in it then renames itself to w drive.
I am using Windows 7, 64 bit.
Has anyone tried using a different brand of external drive in this situation??
