I have 3 HDs that I'd like to back up to a 4th HD overnight.

If I set the schedules as:

HD 1 b/u start at 00:01

HD 2 b/u start at 00:02

HD 3 b/u start at 00:03
will that work?
Does the program "know" to wait until the HD 1 b/u is done and then start the HD 2 b/u regardless of the time it is when the HD 1 b/u completes, or must I enter a start time for HD 2 b/u that's after HD 1 b/u is in fact complete?

Hi,
If your computer supports that, you can run multiple backups in the same time.
FBackup does not wait for the previous job to complete, each backup execution will start at its scheduled time.

Wow.

Thanks for quick and to-the-point reply!
Just wondering, does it save any time to run them concurrently; doesn't the extra load on the CPU, etc., slow everything down?

Hi,
Yes, that is why I told you if your computer supports that, because there will be 3 backups running in the same moment, trying to read/write information.
