Ghost 12 says "Back Destination is Unavailable"

After installing Ghost 12.0 and running the initial backup wizard I switched the backup hard drive out for an offline copy. (The drive that showed up had the same drive letter that the original drive for the backup had.) After making that backup and switching back the the original drive Ghost now says it can not find the drive.

I have tried deleting the initial backup schedule and re-running the wizard over again but I end up with the same error... any ideas on how to fix this?

have you tried a full uninstall and deletion from the registry , and then reinstall ?

Not sure how Ghost handles media if not set as removable.

I hope this helps !
Try rebooting and making sure the computers can see the backup drive first  Then see if Ghost can see the media.

Try to clear up mounter devices points via regedit. Then reconnect the drive and see if it is detected.

Run hardware diagnostics.  The previous responses all assume the HDD is operational.
