WHS 2011 Server Backup Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently had to add a second TB of storage to my WHS 2011.  This has facilitated the need to increase the backup storage space.  The question is, must the automated backup exist on a single drive ie. a 2TB drive or can certain folders be backed up to two different 1 TB drives (both connected).

    It essence, I would like to configure an automated backup to send folder set 1 to backup drive 1 and folder set 2 to backup drive 2 or configure 2 automated backups, 1 containing set 1 of folders going to backup drive 1 and a second automated backup to backup set 2 of folders to backup drive 2.

    The wizzard only seems to allow me to configure a single automated backup which means that I have to replace my TB backup drive for a 2TB backup drive.

    Thanks for your help.

  • That's correct. You can not back up the Server across multiple drives automatically.
