Backup to multiple external drives (WHS 2011) RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is in regards to WHS 2011. I have two external hard drives to use for server backup, a 1TB and a 2TB.

    They are both plugged in and powered on. I've noticed that backups succeed to the 1TB drive but have always fail to the 2TB drive. The failure details say "The operation failed because there is another operation in progress."


    Is it possible to have both external drives always plugged in and the backups alternate between the two drives? Or have the backups run at different times to each drive? I've read that your supposed to physically rotate the drives, but this is inconvient.
