Base Folder

Creating a new backup, store file paths relative to this folder.

Restoring the backup, Backup Tool recreates folder tree under this folder in the target folder.

It is strongly recommended to set the Base folder to the nearest parent folder of any folder of project's included masks.

Example 1.

You have selected two included masks in the project:

"c:\My documents\My Pictures\*.*" and "c:\My documents\My Sounds\*.*".

Set the Base Folder to "c:\My documents".

Example 2.

You have selected two included masks in the project:

"c:\My documents\My Pictures\*.*" and "c:\My Work\Data\*.*".

Set the Base Folder to "c:\".

Example 3.

You have selected two included masks in the project:

"c:\My documents\My Pictures\*.*" and "d:\My documents\My Sounds\*.*".

Note: Do not include folders of different drives into a single backup project! As any zip-file the Backup Tool-made backup can't store the drive information. Create a separate projects for every mask above.
