Backup confusion, F is now H????

SBS 2008, I was trying to make a quick "extra" backup and made a mess, instead.

I have an External RAID that has been at "F". It has been the location for Backup to run my daily backups. Has been working fine.

Problem is that today I had the brilliant idea to shut down, install another F drive, reboot and then run a quick back up to the newly installed F.  

When that was not working well, I stopped the quick backup, shut down, removed the Extra F drive, rebooted and now:

1-External RAID had been at "F", but now is "H', not "F", even after removing the "extra" F I had put in, when I removed it and restarted, still assigns External RAID as H and Backup doesn't see it?
2-Backup thinks there is a backup that did not finish.

How do I get Backup to see the External RAID and how do I get the External RAID to be at F instead of H ( the extra drive is no longer in computer) and how do I get Backup to forget about the backup I stopped?

Just go into diskmanagement and assign the drive letter F: to what now is H:. You might first have to disable the backup service so you can do that.

I don't know if you can make the server "forget" about the failed backup, but that should really not be a problem.

Ok, are you saying when Backup runs again tonite that it will resolve the "failed backup" alert it is giving me now?

I'm just saying that the failure message is just a message. If it doesn't fail tonight, the next message won't be of a failure but the old message should still be there. It might not display anymore though.
