Back up to Flash drive won't record back up date

When I back up my Quicken files to my computer I can enter the date of the back up. But, if I insert a flash drive the date is greyed out and I can't enter a date. It only shows the date of the file. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    @ron shanbrom  if you click on "Change" rather than use the list box or drop list, I think it will work.  Just click on "Change" and choose your flash drive location.  You can even change the backup name and add or remove the date and time without issues.  The key to making this work properly is to never touch the list box, or drop down list.
