Depending on how you want to do it there are 2 ways of making this work. I
have not tried either way recently however.
I'm assuming you want to back up to maybe a flash drive or a removable hard
drive (usb device). This should work to any device.
1. Make the removable device the A: drive.
Using these instructions change the letter of the drive in question to
2. Using the SUBST.EXE command make a virtual A: drive in a directory on the
other removable drive.
Assuming the removable drive is F:
Make a directory on the F: drive (any name) I used "adrive"
C:\> mkdir f:\adrive
Use the subst.exe command to point make a virtual drive
C:\> subst a: f:\adrive
This will now give you an A: drive that points to the directory on the
C:\> dir a:
Volume in drive A is FLASH
Volume Serial Number is C8CA-B605
Directory of A:\
12/18/2009 08:19 PM <DIR> .
12/18/2009 08:19 PM <DIR> ..

2 Dir(s) 849,313,792 bytes free
To remove this substitution
C:\> subst a: /d

Can anybody please tell me how I can use the "autosave" feature in my CT
during this weekends contest if I don't have a drive A to put a floppy disc
My HP Pavilion only has two CD/DVD drives, but no floppy...
