I have my adobe PSE 2021 catalogs and backup catalogs on second internal drive "D". The program is on my "C" drive. If I set edit preference for PSE 2021 to back up catalog weekly, where will it put the backup data? I also backup "C" and "D" internal drives to 2 external hard drives using Toolkit.

Thank you, Ken Skopp

Are you saying that you're keeping your catalog data AND your backups on the same drive? An internal drive?

I'm not sure that's such a good idea, Ken. You want your backups saved to an external drive or site in case something happens to your computer.
