Pair of identical USB drives

Postby norvian » Tue Sep 24, 2013 11:31 pm

I have two identical USB drives which I want to alternate as backup devices. The backup to the first device works fine but when I remove that drive and connect the second drive no files are copied, I assume this because FBackup can't differentiate between the drives so it won't copy the new files a second time. Is there anyway I can get this to work?

Thanks

Hi,

You can use the Full backup type, it will back up all files every time or if using the Mirror backup type, you have to create separate backup jobs for each destination drive.
