BackupHistory: Removable drives
« on: September 26, 2016, 06:30:24 pm »
Slick ought to use something other than the drive letter to identify drives, especially removable drives.
The drive letters for removeables often changes - depending on many things and can change from day to day.

Using the volume serial number would be a better choice.

Might be good to do this for non-removables as well, since those can change too, though in practice not nearly as often.

Seems like network shares even have serial numbers
