Happened right after daylight savings time ended. Now when I run BackUp Magic I get a huge list of errors:

E> Create folder failed (The system cannot find the path specified) Source: "Z:\PWORKS\" Dest: "F:\Wednesday\pworks\"
E> Copy failed (The system cannot find the path specified) Source: "Z:\PWORKS\0.WAV" Dest: "F:\Wednesday\pworks\0.WAV"
....
...
.....
Too many errors, all not logged!
Status: all done
New files: 0
Updated files: 0
Deleted files: 0
Errors: 27295
Copied: 0 bytes of 22.41GB
Interface: graphical
<---- Finished Wed 4/1/2009 @ 8:34:42 AM ---->

Any ideas?

All other errors happen because the first one -- creation of target folder failed. Probably your F drive is not accessible (or at least was not accessible during backup).

Just check why you can't access your F drive. As you did not post any system info it is not clear what type of drive it is. Open Windows Explorer and see if you can create folders on your F drive manually. If so then run BM again and see what happens.

When I plug in the external hard drive it says it's drive 'e'. I don't see anything about drive 'f' anywhere in 'My Computer'.

Then you'll need to change your backup set to copy to E drive, not F.

With removable drives it is best to manually assign drive letters to them, otherwise Windows may assign different letter each time you plug it on, depending on what other drives/USB sticks you have connected at the moment.

How to assign drive letter manually see this topic:
