    I am trying to do a backup on a usb drive. The wizard locates the device I want to backup to, but when I click next I get a message do not use <> / \? " :*.. My usb drive is named emptydisk ( all lowercase I may add )the wizard or the computer adds bracket capital e colon bracket so I click next again and it loops back to don't use these symbols. Any help will be appreciated thank you
