firstly can i say what a great piece of software.
my question is:
can i safely back up to two different destinations (two external hard drives at the same time)
e.g. set the schedule for back up to disk 1 and to disk 2 at the very same time?
i know it does seem to do it as i am running a test back up now but i wanted to make sure that was OK?
i have created two seperate back up files (one to each destination) is that right or can i nominate two destinations in the same back up?

FBackup can backup only to one destination at a time.
A possible solution is to have two backup jobs:

- a job should make the actual backup to the first external drive

- another job should copy the backed up data from the first external drive to the second.

I have been utilising FBackup now for 1 month or so, and still learning to use it--I am pleased with it to date.
I have checked the manual concerning the Scheduler (p.48), wherein it states that the scheduling is done in relation to the current job, and has the ability to add new scheduled tasks. M4Morris's post develops this.
My questions develop this further:
My planned regular backup includes 3 items: folder1, file1, file2. The destinations for folder1 is the HDD, and the External HDD. The destination for file1, and file2 is the External HDD.
i) Is it possible to utilise the Scheduler to do this?

ii) If so, how?
Thanks

Hi,
For each backup job, please open the Backup Properties->Scheduler->Add

Press "Set password" and type your Windows login password.

Press OK. A new window will appear. Here you can set the start time and the execution frequency.

Press OK then press Save.
