Drive ID by other than letter

Apparently, the free version will only identify drives by letter. Do other, paid, version allow drive ID by other than letter?

Hi, yes, there are some alternatives you can use in Lite/SE/Pro. There are details about them in all the Help files (including the Help in SB Free)

Modify any profile > Simple settings page opens by default > note the Alternatives buttons on extreme right of Source & Destination boxes

Now press F1 with that Simple settings page still open and read the section regarding those Alternatives buttons in the contextual Help page that will open. The explanatory text contains hyperlinks to the Variables section of the Help file for more background details. Scroll to the bottom of the Variables section for a list of those not supported in Free (i.e., that can be gained by upgrading). All variables will work in the Lite/SE/Pro models with the proviso that Variables referring to SyncBack Touch will not work in Lite, for the simple reason Touch itself is not supported by the Lite version.

Note: you can install a copy of any commercial version for free 30 days evaluation without affecting your SBFree installation. Just make sure you install the commercial version/s into separate folder/s to SBFree/each other (the default folder/s you will be offered comply with this requirement). Free/Lite/SE/Pro are all standalone programs and do not upgrade each other / you can install & use all four at once if you wish. You can uninstall any commercial version afterwards if you decide not to go ahead, without affecting your Free install; likewise you can uninstall Free if you decide to switch to using a commercial version.
