As a precautionary measure, I've purchased 7 brand new external hard drives, each hard drive representing one day out of the week, e.g. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc, so that we may have a rotational-backup system in place for our server.
I set up a single Mirror backup using Fbackup, selected the entire C: drive of our server hard drive, (excluding temp. files of course), then set it to backup manually without a schedule. The initial backup was successful on the first external hard drive.
When I plug-in the second external hard drive the next day, then run the same mirror backup I created the day prior, It copies for about ten or so minutes then stops, saying it is completed when it is not. It should be taking around 2 hours since there is no data on the disk yet. Looking at the drive, some, but not all folders copy over. I plugged in another one of the external drives, and the same thing occurred, only a few of the folders from the server hard drive are copied over, then it just stops.
Should I be creating a separate backup job for each external hard drive? Or, any other suggestions as to why this is occurring?
Thank you for your help.
