When you choose an external drive for use with Norton Ghost as either a backup destination or an Offsite Copy destination, it can become confusing if you are using more than one drive, especially when the assigned drive letter changes each time you plug in the drive.
To help you manage these destinations, Norton Ghost lets you assign a nickname to each external drive. Doing so does not change the drive label, but is for use only when you are accessing those drives from within Norton Ghost.
For example, you might be swapping out two different external drives used as Offsite Copy destinations during any given week. Depending on the drive labels assigned to each drive and whether or not the drive letter previously assigned has changed, it could become confusing as to which drive you are using at any given time.
