Partition Backups and Numbering
I have 2 issues with Aomei Backupper.
1. When I change the size of a partition on the same HDD - something I do not infrequently - but do not change the partition label, my scheduled partition backup fails saying it cannot find the partition and I have to delete the scheduled backup task and re-eter it. But the backup itself has not changed, I am still backing up the same logical partition on the same HDD as before! I have not had this problem with previous backup software used since the days of Windows 97 and before. I should not have to delete and re-schedule a backup task because I have changed the partition size of a logical partition on the same HDD.
2. The above problem leads to the second. Because I have to delete and re-schedule the backup as above, the backup adi file reverts back to "no number", then 1, 2, etc for subsequent weekly scheduled backups. I backup around 8 logical partitions once a week. I want the backup numbers on all of these adi backups to be the same on the same day. But because of the issue (1) above, some backups will be at say number 12 and now others with be blank or a different number. And so it goes on! This then gets very confusing. Yes, I can manually change the number on the adi file, but at the next scheduled backup my manually changed backup number is ignored by Aomei Backupper and the backup number is +1 on the number Aomei gave on the last backup for this partition. So I am now left with backup numbers all over the place for different partition backups on the same day.
While I accept because of the way you do backups, (1) above may be the more difficult to correct, please can we have a facility to automatically number the Backupper adi files to our choosing. Then I can at least have all my logical partition backups today labelled with the same number.
