Rotate Disks option in New Backup Wizard

Postby david9jw » Thu Dec 11, 2014 1:44 pm

I read elsewhere on the forum that FBackup doesn't support rotating external disks, i.e. where two usb drives are used alternately for a mirror backup so that each contains a complete and up to date copy of my files at the time the backup was run. Note I only have one backup job configured and not one job for each usb drive.

If the above is correct then what does the check box 'Rotate Disks' do in the New Backup Wizard Drive Selection screen? Why is this option not shown again after creating the job and then viewing the properties?

Thanks. David

That option is not available in FBackup, but only in our commercial edition Backup4all.
The checkbox you saw was removed as it was not working on FBackup.
