Example:
I have two flash drives one has the label FLASH NEW the other the label FLASH OLD. I would like to control backups to these flash drives using a single configuration file, let's call it
FLASH DOCUMENTS.ffs_gui Then I hit the problem that because both drives have different labels I can't use Variable Drive Letters to access them from a single .ffs_gui file.

A solution to this problem would be allow wildcards when specifying a Variable Drive Letters mode of accessing the drives. So a path for the two drives above could be set in the following ways (for example):

[FLASH *]\DOCUMENTS BACKUP
[FLASH*]\DOCUMENTS BACKUP
[FLASH ???]\DOCUMENTS BACKUP
[FLASH????]\DOCUMENTS BACKUP

And so on. I think this would be a good improvement to how Variable Drive Letters work.
