Storagecraft Shadowprotect - Image Manager to replicate to removable USB drives

Hi there,

Anyone is using ShadowProtect Image Manager to replicate backups to multiple USB drives to take offsite? E.g. Rotating plug in the drives weekly.

I get some warnings and errors in ImageManager, which doesn't look very elegant, and just wondering if there is a better way of doing this out there.

I used to configure the drives so they come up as the same drive letter, however, that seem to cause some errors too, becaused some backup files dont get consolidated properly and the drives can get filled up quite quickly.

See screenshot attached, we have 2 * 2TB USB drives, now showing up as G: and H:, while one drive is plugged in for replication, the other one is offsite, not sure if doing it this way is any better.

Any tips and tricks would be appreciated.
