Hello

I'm trying to backup to 2 different external hard disks, the plan being to back up to one HDD then next time the other, then the first etc... (one is kept off site). i want to copy files uncompressed.

can i check my settings:

as far as i can tell i need to 'mirror' and then by using a shortcut check 'clear backup before run'. Am i correct in thinking this will delete the old '.fkc' file but *not* the previously backed-up files (as they are not zipped). Then based on the current file list copy over only whatever is missing from the *current* destination external HDD.

Is this true? My concern is it will backup with reference to the last backup job which is in fact a different external hdd.


Also, I assume it recognised drives by assigned letter, not drive name. (I'm using XP). True? what if the usb letter then changes?


thanks for your help, and your great software.

Hi,


You want to create a backup rotation scheme. This cannot be done using FBackup.


Please read this article about how you can do that using Backup4all:
